Coney Island is a peninsular residential neighborhood, beach, and leisure/entertainment destination on the Coney Island Channel, which is part of the Lower Bay in the southwestern part of the borough of Brooklyn, New York City. The site was formerly an island, but became partially connected to the mainland by landfill. Coney Island is best known as the site of amusement parks and a major resort that reached their peak during the first half of the 20th century. In recent years, the area has seen the opening of MCU Park and has become home to the minor league baseball team the Brooklyn Cyclones.
