      Coney Island for a day

      by Lillian90 Online Now Jul 10, 2010 at 4:44 PM

      Hi :)

      My sister and I are in New York at the moment, and we have thought about going to Coney Island one of the days next week. But first I have a few questions I hope some of you might be able to answer :)

      I have read in my danish guidebook that it might not be a very safe area but my Lonely Planet seems to indicate that it is safe enough for tourists to visit, and then again i have read various things on the Internet. So can someone please tell me, is it or isn't safe to go there for tourist?

      It seems like we can take the Subway D from Bryant Park (we life near Times Square) directly to Coney Island, without any transfers. Do any of you know the price for for that trip and approximately how long it would take?

      Thanks for any help or info you might have!
      Lillian
