Coney Island , New York

One of the most famous of all Brooklyn landmarks is the Parachute Jump in Coney Island. Originally built for the World's Fair in 1939, it was then moved to its present location. People would pay to be hoisted to the top, then gently ride down by parachute.

If you visit that site, you may be able to smell the hot dogs sold by Nathan's another Brooklyn fixture. I'm getting hungry just writing about it!
