CONEY ISLAND — With summer in full swing, many New Yorkers are looking for a chance to head to the beach — even Spider-Man, Minnie Mouse, SpongeBob, the Minions, and more.

The infamous costumed crusaders that normally work the sidewalks of Times Square have made a summertime appearance on the beach boardwalk in Coney Island.

Dressed as favorite cartoon characters or superheroes, they try to pose with tourists and excited children — then demand an additional tip. They have been known to harass picture-takers. Last year, several of these dressed-up personalities were accused of being overly aggressive in Manhattan’s biggest tourist destination.
