The Parachute Jump


Standing 262 feet tall, and weighing approximately 170 tons, the bedrock landmark of Coney Island amusement park, NYC. Plans for redevelopment of the Coney Island park are rapidly moving forward amid much controversy, however, The Parachute Jump will be preserved.

  1. Great perspective and colors.

    Just bought a D60 and am having a fun time learning how to use it. One day I’ll graduate to a D300.
