the parachute jump on coney island, the only part of steeplechase park that's still standing

FC from NewYork, United States

Steeplechase, ahh the memories.!! Yes, and once on the parachute.
Closed back in the late '60/s.
This is an image that depicts the antiquity of the 'Parachute', nicely done.

@FC: i'll let you in on a little secret... the shot is tilted because i was using infrared film with an infrared filter. while i framed, focused and all that jazz before i put the infrared filter on my lens, i couldn't entirely see thru the opaque filter once it was on my lens, and the shot came out slightly tilted... but i think it's better that way.

my dad remembers the steeplechase too. i don't suppose you remember the old city hall subway station?
