Coney Island (Area US-175NS) is a peninsula, formerly an island, in southernmost Brooklyn, New York City, USA, with a beach on the Atlantic Ocean.

Info

The neighborhood of the same name is a community of 60,000 people in the western part of the peninsula, with Seagate to its west; Brighton Beach and Manhattan Beach to its east; and Gravesend to the north.

The area was a major resort and site of amusement parks that reached its peak in the early 20th century. It declined in popularity after World War II and endured years of neglect. In recent years, the area has been revitalized by the opening of KeySpan Park, home to the successful Brooklyn Cyclones minor league baseball team.

Geography

Coney Island is the westernmost of the barrier islands of Long Island, about four miles (6 km) long and one-half mile wide. It used to be an island, separated from the main part of Brooklyn by Coney Island Creek, part of which was little more than tidal flats. There were plans into the 20th century to dredge and straighten the creek as a ship canal, but they were abandoned and the center of the creek was filled in for construction of the Belt Parkway before World War II. The western and eastern ends are now peninsulas.

In Cloverfield

Rob and Beth the day at Coney Island on April 27th, recording their journey and arrival with Rob's camera. Scenes of their trip appear infrequently throughout the film and (more of their trip was revealed in the DVD's two "Alternate Endings"). The footage was recorded over by Jason (continued by Hud when Jason gives him the camera). When the film reaches its end, Rob randomly films the sea, and an unidentified object can be seen falling into the sea. The object in question is the Tagruato satellite.
