This is the story of one of the Coney Island steam railroads which is today part of the New York City Transit Authority. The New York system is so complex that even a bare outline would encompass a large volume. This account, as in the author's previous work, The Brooklyn and Rockaway Beach Railroad, attempts to concentrate on one of the predecessor companies in greater detail. It is up to the reader to decide how successful he has been.
The New York and Sea Beach was in its day the most popular route to Coney Island. This was because it furnished the fastest service and was considered to have the best equipment. It was also highly competitive with the other lines and always undercut their fares.
As in all projects of this type, official records are meager. While the information contained in the New York State Railroad Commission Reports is invaluable, it is the newspaper accounts of the day which breathe life into the story and make it seem contemporary.
