Coney Island Souvenir Shops

Post by WildBoy »

I am planning to head to Coney while I am travelling on business in the month of September.  Been readin around  that a few shops along/near the Wonder Wheel and beach do sell Warrior material/items.

Can anyone confirm if this is true?  And does anyone know if there are any speciifc shops that sell some good Warrior material in Coney Island?

Thanks in advance.,

Don't know if you've taken your trip yet, but I'll answer anyways.

On the corner of Stillwell Av. and Bowery St., I believe, there's a Russian-owned shop that has  Warriors Ts.  It's one block from Stillwell Av. subway, heading toward the beach.  I don't remember seeing anything else in other shops.

A little side note:  once you get to Bowery, you should recognize it.  That's where the Rogues were following them in their Rogue-mobile.

Thanks for replying CanYouCount.  I am actually heading down this weekend - I was also told that there is a shop behind Nathan's  that might have some stuff.  However, cause the summer season ended SEPT 1st, the shop might likely be closed.

I appreciate you giving me info on this store - I will check it out, and let you know!

Hey well I am back, and it was thrilling to visit Coney and hit the Wonder Wheel,  Walking around the amusement palk, seeing the chain link fences, and the small shops - it was like I was walking into the video game.

As for the shop, easy to find, no sweat.  They had Warriors shirts, hats, hoods - and a guy said that he could make me Warriors clothing in any thing I wanted (i.e. tank top, etc.)

I got the shirt, the hood, bought one for a friend i in fact I am wearing the hood right now while in the hotel lobby.  Having all the people stop and stare at the red coloured lettering makes me smirk at them.

Thanks for the tip CanYouCount.

One surprising thing, I did not realise how big a Russian community has moved into Coney.  I was thinking Italians and Spanish would be the dominant.

Take care everyone!

Brighton Beach has long been inhabited by Russians.  I'm guessing they spilled over into eastern Coney.  African Americans seem to dominate in the western half.

Thank you for the tip on the customized stuff.  I've been trying to find something with the conclave decal, like the one Dave Harris was wearing in his interview on the Director's Cut DVD.

Glad you found everything so easily. Really Coney isn't difficult to navigate though. I'm also glad that at least something was open when you got there :) I do hope you had a chance to visit the Freak Show.. it's always my favorite thing to do....  really I just love Donny Vomit

What would be the easiest way to get down to Coney if you are staying in Manhatten?

Will it be the subway, and how long a trip would that be?

The subway will be the quickest transportation to Coney from Manhattan. It is pretty cheap, too. The D, F, N, or Q train will take you to Stillwell Avenue in Coney Island.

Give yourself at least a half hour from downtown Manh. to Coney.
I'd take the N.  It expresses between Atlantic Av.- Pacific St. and 59th St. (one stop at 36th, yeah a short express dist., but better than nothing).  The D expresses too, but there are more stops between 36th and Stillwell.

Thanks for the advice.

As I am from the UK and I am not familiar with NYC, is Coney Island a safe place to go and visit?

Is it somewhere I can walk around freely with my girlfriend, or are there area's to avoid?

It's an ethnic mix.  This area is mainly African-American, Russian, Italian, some Hispanic.  I've walked along Surf Av., which stretches through Coney Island and Brighton Beach.  People jogging along the Boardwalk... that type thing.  In general, when in New York, be aware of your surroundings.

I was there last September - the theme park, boardwalk area are pretty safe - tons of people around. I went as well down the street to visit the Aquarium on Surf Avenue (which I HIGHLY recommend for you to visit - its really a great tourist attraction IMHO).  There's a police station RIGHT across the street from the Aquarium and there's a noticeable police presence at the Stillwell Avenue train station.  I talked to a cop there to get some directions - no problems.

If you do decide to wander far from the theme park or the baseball park, than like canyoucount stated - be aware of your surroundings - its New York.  I did see a few shady characters and decided to turn around and head back toward Stillwell Station.

I spent a few hours soaking in the scene - eating at Nathans, talking to a few locals, shopping at the Beach Shop, staring at the ocean and of course riding the iconic Coney Island ferris wheel was a highlight indeed.

I did not take an express train so my train ride from 33rd Street Station to Coney Island was well over an hour long - But it was cool ride!!!!

Enjoy!
