Coney Island in Pop Culture

Coney Island is a landmark in American history and it’s appeared in dozens of movies, books, and shows. Almost everyone knows what Luna Park and Coney Island look like, and where they are. Here are a couple of fascinating appearances Coney Island has made in pop culture.

In The Great Gatsby, the main character Nick goes to Coney Island with Gatsby. The Great Gatsby is one of the greatest American novels ever published, and it talks about decadence in the Roaring Twenties. Jat Gatsby is an especially famous character.

The final scene in the 2008 movie Cloverfield takes place on Coney Island. The main characters ride on the Ferris Wheel. The movie was produced by the famous J.J. Abrams and follows six people who are running from a giant monster.

Director Darren Aronofsky’s first two films, Pi and Requiem for a Dream, both feature Coney Island. This makes sense because Aronofsky grew up in Brighton Beach right next to Coney Island. Requiem for a Dream is an especially famous film about drug addiction.

Stop by Feltman’s of Coney Island, grab a hot dog, and check out some of the spots where these movies were filmed!

This update is by Feltman’s of Coney Island Hot Dogs, a symbol of American tradition and quality for decades and the proud maker of the first hot dog originally founded by its namesake Charles Feltman, the inventor of the hot dog. Feltman’s hot dogs are free of nitrates and artificial ingredients, using all natural beef to create an experience that explodes with incredible, original flavor. For more information, please visit one of the locations in Brooklyn or Feltman’s Kitchen on St. Marks Place in the East Village to try some of the best hot dogs in the country.
