*The Eiffel Tower of Brooklyn*

AKA the (now defunct) Parachute Jump on the Boardwalk in CONEY ISLAND, Brooklyn, NY.  It’s pretty cool and you’d be surprised at its beginnings.  You can check it out HERE if you’re curious and also check out the STUNNING BLACK AND WHITE PHOTOS that show the changing landscape of  Coney Island’s many theme parks.

    I am enjoying my virtual tour of your area…I don’t think I would be jumping off that anytime soon!

    Cool history and I am so glad that is is red. I like the raised arms of the passer-by.
