Great photo of another piece of our past that is no longer -- barbara

Actually, that looks remarkably identical to the Cyclone, which just celebrated its -- I think -- 85th anniversary this year. I could be wrong, but I've been on it something like 40 times in my life. It was the Thunderbolt that was demolished and served as the fictional boyhood home of Woody Allen in "Annie Hall."

Fantastic photo. Not that I could go for a ride on it (too much motion sickness here), but it's nice to dream about it.

Oh boy, would I ride it.

With a Cyclone into the fog - what a ride (and photo)!

ooh how brilliant!!

Erica said...

@Ken Mac: My pleasure. The photo is interesting though as it was taken before Coney Island underwent its most recent renaissance. The area seen in the photo is far more gussied up these days. :)

How cool is this!!! It should get historic landmark status! Especially nice photo in the fog, Ken.

Oh ya! Woody Allen livin under the Cyclone. Loved that movie AND this fog image.
