Coney Island Landmark

On Friday, with out of town visitors in tow, we returned to the playground of our youth  … Coney Island. The 270 f00t Parachute Jump was moved to Coney Island after its run at the 1939 Worlds Fair. It was the most intimidating ride and a centerpiece of the most famous amusement park of it’s time.  It remains a centerpiece but only as a distinguished landmark.  Meanwhile the amusement area is undergoing a renaissance with many new and exciting attractions. The beach and the famous boardwalk remain as a primary recreation facility for Brooklyn and the New York City community in general.
