Got a shot of the Cyclone in Coney Island before going home last night.
I remember when I was a docent at the NY Aquarium, as long as you had your tshirt on, you could get on for free. The rumor was that the Cyclone was built on Aquarium property (I could check propertyshark if I were so inclined) and you could get on for free. Of course, the Aquarium came decades AFTER the Cyclone. I suspect it was just good will on the part of the owners and workers, who were always very nice to us.
My daughter was wondering when she’d be old enough to go — maybe this year we’ll measure her up to the little sign on the side and she can go on with Daddy. A family tradition in the making.
