Coney Island in Film

Coney Island’s history goes back for several decades and it has since achieved a status as one of the most iconic and well-known places in the country. With its legendary status, it frequently makes appearances in pop culture across mediums such as books, music, movies, and more. Let’s explore a couple of these.

Before it achieved its status as a cult classic, the 1979 film The Warriors was based on a novel by the same name released in 1965. One of the gangs featured prominently in the novel is the Coney Island Dominators. Coney Island is also mentioned in the 1925 classic novel The Great Gatsby when the main character invites the character, Nick Carraway, to visit Coney Island.

Are you a fan of Beyonce? If so, you may have noticed that Coney Island made an appearance in the music video for her song “XO” off of her self-titled album released in 2013. The cover of singer-songwriter Cyndi Lauper’s classic 1983 debut album She’s So Unusual was shot by famous photographer Annie Leibovitz at Henderson Walk located in Coney Island. Remember the 1995 song “One of Us” by singer and songwriter Joan Osborne? The music video also featured shots of Coney Island.

Coney Island’s appearance in film goes as far back as the early 1900s when Luna Park made an appearance in the silent short film appropriately titled Coney Island, starring Buster Keaton and Fatty Arbuckle. The 2008 monster horror film Cloverfield has a scene near the end where the characters are on the Coney Island Ferris Wheel. As for television, Coney Island has appeared on shows like The Sopranos, the Hulu series The Path, and an episode of Ugly Betty.
