Surf Avenue in Coney Island

       In a recent issue of Delta’s Sky magazine, film director Darren Aronofsky (Requiem for a Dream, The Wrestler, Black Swan), a native of New York City, reminisced about his boyhood summers on Surf Avenue in Coney Island. 

       Some of his favorite memories (and some things from present day) are:

  • Nathan’s Famous hot dogs, of course
  • The New York Aquarium
  • The Eldorado bumper cars
  • MCU Stadium, home of the minor league baseball Brooklyn Cyclones
  • Brighton Beach, a diverse community at the end of the boardwalk
  • Tatiana Restaurant (Russian) and Totonno’s (pizza)
  • And of course, the Coney Island Cyclone wooden roller coaster, built in 1927.

       Even today, Coney Island is a great place to enjoy!
