Free Fireworks: Summers, Coney Island

Member Rating 5 out of 5 by Mashka on February 11, 2006

Coney Island has free fireworks every Friday in the summer, starting at 9:30pm in front of Astroland Park, between West 10th and 12th Streets.

Come early, come late, it doesn’t matter. For some reason, not many people know about this summer event. I like to get a hot dog or some cheese fries and a cherry slushy (or maybe a beer, depending). And I sit on a bench on the long pier on the Boardwalk. Bringing a blanket and lying on the beach is nice, too.

This is one of my favorite summer activities and makes me absolutely love New York. Take a date, a friend, or your kids, or go alone. This is a relaxing thing to do on a Friday night.

Take the Q, F, or D trains to Coney Island.
