Coney Island by subway

Which subway route to Coney Island has the most elevated miles? I want to take some Californians there by the most scenic route. Thanks for any advice.

Also if you know advise if Totonno's survived Sandy.

Brighton (Q) is mostly enbankment and open cut.
Culver (F) elevated (after Church Av), but all local.
West End (D) elevated (after 36 St), but express along 4 Av, which would be preferred route.
Sea Beach (N) open cut, with a ride through Coney Island Yards.
Since my friend continues to chain smoke nonstop, she is probably an Alco.

Thanks for your advice. I think I will take the F to Coney and come back on the D.
