If you haven't been to Coney Island, I suggest you add it to your summer to do list. It's such a fun time. A main attraction of this seaside playground is the Coney Island Cyclone.
This wooden roller coaster first opened June 26, 1927, 84 years ago today! To preserve the historical impact of the Cyclone, it was declared a New York City Landmark in 1988 and a National Historic Landmark in 1991.
Three years ago Steve and I took our first trip to Coney Island. Not to miss the majors, we stepped up and took a ride on the historic coaster. It was quite a ride! A little rocky for my neck and nerves, but overall a fond summer memory. Of course we couldn't pass up the souvenir picture.
