NEW YORK -- There's nothing more magical than Coney Island at night, whether it's on the Soaring Eagle in Luna Park or on the boardwalk.

"Lots of hot guys on the boardwalk," Julia Agosto, a Coney Island lover, told PIX11. "My husband's not listening, I hope."

And there's nothing like a corn dog and fries at Nathan's.

But some are holding off on chowing down until Saturday, when Nathan's original restaurant on Surf Avenue returns to its 1916 prices for its 100th anniversary celebration.

Back then, hot dogs were a nickel a piece. Saturday, you're limited to two per customer,

"From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.," Michelle Robinson, a Nathan's lover, told PIX11. "I will get there early to get my 5 cent hot dog," she added.

At the annual free Bethpage air show at Jones Beach, there's something new this year. Three jet teams are in action? U.S. Navy Blue Angels, Canadian Snowbirds and the Breitling jet team.

PIX11's Marissa Torres went up in the sky for a piece of the action.

But New Jersey governor Chris Christie was down to earth, walking the boardwalk in Point Pleasant hoping tourism at the Jersey shore will break last year's record setting total of $43.4 billion.

"Hopefully, we'll have another record-breaking summer, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie told PIX11. "Depending on the weather."

But if you rather stay in Manhattan, you can try to catch the glow of Manhattanhenge when the setting sun aligns perfectly with the east-west street grid at 8:12 p.m., both Sunday and Monday.
