Big News for the Coney Island Boardwalk

Here’s something you may be surprised to learn about Coney Island. Despite its iconic status and popularity, the famous Coney Island Boardwalk (officially known as the Riegelmann Boardwalk) is not, in fact, considered a landmark. A tad bewildering, right? Well, the boardwalk’s non-landmark status is no longer! In case you missed the news last week, the Riegelmann Boardwalk has now been deemed and designated an official New York City landmark! It joins some of New York’s other legendary landmarks including Central Park and Prospect Park.

With the boardwalk’s landmark designation (which, coincidentally, was celebrated on its 95th anniversary), historians and longtime visitors can rest assured that its status and its rich past will remain permanent. The first portion of the 2.7-mile stretch opened way back in October 1922 before it was extended two months later and finally completed in May of 1923. The boardwalk’s official name comes from Edward J. Riegelmann, a politician who at the time was serving as the Brooklyn Borough President.

Our very own Michael Quinn along with community leaders spent a day testifying before members of the City Council on behalf of the Boardwalk. This resolution ultimately led to the Boardwalk being designated a scenic landmark. It was truly a team effort.

Grab yourself a Feltman’s hot dog and take a stroll through The Big Apple’s latest landmark!
