The CANARSIE PIER:  Located At The Southern Tip Of Rockaway Parkway At The Belt Parkway, Is One Of The Most Popular Year-Round Fishing Spots. It Is On Jamaica Bay. Unless Their Is A Blizzard, A Noreaster, Or Sub-Freezing Temperatures, You Are Sure To Find Recreational Anglers With A Line Or Two In The Water. Often On A Good Summer Night Finding A Spot Is Near Impossible. The Pier Is Under The Jurisdiction Of The National Park Service, Gateway National Recreational Area. As It Is Federal Property, Any And All Illegal Activity Is Taken Quite Seriously, And You Must Appear In A U.S. District Court. So Heed The Warning. U.S. Park Police Routinely Patrol The Pier, And There Are Park Rangers On-Duty From Dawn To Sunset. Plenty Of Free Parking Is Available, Only Exceptions Are Memorial Day And Labor Day When The Pier Is Full Of People. There Are Bathroom Facilities In The Park Office, And Food Is Available At A Fast-Food Counter (May Be Closed In The Winter). We Suggest That You Drive or Walk And Few Block North On Rkwy. Pkwy. To Get Food. Picnic Benches Are On-Site.

The STEEPLECHASE PIER

The WORLD FAMOUS STEEPLECHASE PIER In CONEY ISLAND, USA..Home Of The Worlds Most Famous Amusement Park Area, Beach, Nathan's Famous Hot Dogs, The NY Aquarium, And The Popular Minor League (NY Mets) CYCLONES Baseball Team, At Keyspan Park. Annual Events Include The Mermaid Parade, Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest, And The Friday Night Fireworks Spectacular. NYC Subway's Including The "D", "F", "Q", "N" Line Stop Here. Take The Belt Parkway And Exit At Either Cropsey Avenue Southbound, Or Ocean Parkway Southbound...Then Just Follow The Signs To The Beach. The Beach Area And The STEEPLECHASE PIER Are NYC DPR Jurisdiction. Surf Fishing On The Beach During Season Is Prohibited. The STEEPLECHASE PIER, Loacted Along The Boardwalk, Just Way Out Into The Atlantic Ocean Past The Swiming Area, And Is Almost Shaped Like A "T." This Is Another Year-Round Popular Fishing Spot (Inclement Weather Permitting). It Can Get Very Crowded With Anglers And Tourist's Alike On A Good Summer Day, Or Night. Another Popular Spot "WAS" From The Jetty Rocks At The Beach At West 37th. Street. However I had heard and read recent reports that Anglers have been banned from there. A few even even given a summons for being on the Rocks, and/or in area of beach with get this "No Lifeguards On-Duty." Seems NYC Parks has all New Rules re: their beaches, but why does the public Not Know About Them. Why did they not have the Media give proper public notice to it all ?.  Time For New Mayor ?.--Hell, Time  For New Folks at the Top Running NYC Parks.  Anyway, If you do fish this jetty and "Don't Get Your Stones Busted", Use Caution Doing So, As A Few Anglers in the past Have Slipped On The Rocks And Were Either Seriously Injured Or Pronounced Dead Right After Doing So.

FYI- NYC DPR Enforcement Is Out In Force Patrolling the Beach (Other Beaches too) with ATV's, etc..  "Over Police'ing." For Bloomberg's Needed $$$ City Revenue.  

CONEY ISLAND CREEK PARK..."Good Surf Fishing Spot"---If Ya Travel Northbound On West 37th. Street From Neptune Avenue It Will take You to the Bayview Houses. Make a right then left onto Bayview Avenue.  Take that along the shoreline to the end. There Is A Small Secluded Shoreline Beach Area, just Opposite The eastside of the SEA GATE Cooperative. Follow the sandy trail at the entrance. There You Can Surf Fish Where Coney Island Creek Meets Both The Atlantic Ocean And Gravesend Bay. Give It A Try!!!. Note: This Spot May reportedly Soon Disappear as part of a plan to further secure the Sea Gate shoreline. And do heed the Warnings here on our site about fishing the Creek.
 
The Face Of The Coney Island Amusement Area Is To Change Over The Next Few Years, as Old Favorites are replaced by reported New Development. "We'll See!."  So Long 'ASTROLAND' which  has now been demolished. It joined 'STEEPLECHASE PARK', and The Original 'LUNA PARK' (and other Other Coney Favorites Now only noted in The History Books and On Internet sites). There Is A New 'LUNA PARK' Now Open For the 2010 Season In Coney, But It Does Not Compare To The Famous Original.
 
RINGLING BROTHERS, BARNUM & BAILEY CIRCUS  WILL BE OPEN IN CONEY ISLAND ALL SUMMER TILL SEPT. 6th., 2010.
