The heart of Coney Island in many ways is the two-part, nonprofit complex Coney Island USA. Best is the Sideshows by the Seashore , where you can see glass-walking, a face-­tattooed fire-eater, a Mormon sword-swallower and nostril nailers. During the summer, Sideshows hosts Burlesque at the Beach (admission $15; 9pm Thu, 10pm Sat May-Sep), a tongue-in-cheek program featuring ‘girlie revues’ and bubble machines; sideshow freaks and vaudeville acts add to the mayhem.
