What I enjoyed when I would get out of the F train was walking to Coney Island and seeing that little store on the left that sold Candy Apples, Big lollipops, Caramel corn, fudge, Salt water taffy. It was a kids dream come true. That's what I remembered about that station. YUM.

My earliest memories of Coney Island were on warm, summer saturday nights, in or around 1969, when my entire family would load up several cars and go out to that amusement park in Brooklyn and have so much fun. I still recall the Marvel I beheld that was the Wonder Wheel, at night, the lights on all of the rides were mesmerizing. My favorite candy was the strawberry shoe laces (licorice), and my all time favorite ride was the Himalaya! I could stay on that ride forever. I made the tragic mistake several times at least, of getting into those cars last, and the centrifugal force would have me crushed by the time I was 1/10 into the ride. But I kept coming back for more! The aromas coming from Nathan's almost completely filled the whole area of the park. I remember being drawn to the wafer/crinkle cut french fries. They were delicious! And the hot dogs were once considered by me to be the best in the world! I am a 40-something year old woman from Manhattan now residing in Virginia since 1990, and I will never forget the cherished memories I hold so dear of Coney Island. Thoes are memories no child should be without.

What I remember about this station is walking down the ramp from the D train and smelling all of the familiar smells that only coney island has. There was always the excitment and antisapation of getting on the rides and for me bumping into friends. This particular station had a lot going on all summer long, from the bums to the beauties it attracted everything and everyone.
