#3 RB Gold

There was an attempt some

years back to demolish the

parachute jump ride tower

However the ground swell

created such a strong reply

that it became landmarked

It was painted & illuminated

with much decorative LEDs

& is a recognized symbol of

Coney Island but will never

return to original operation

Re: the two policemen in the background: somebody must have known something.

I worked for Bob Commerford for several winter seasons doing promotions for his "Pet Expo", a combination of kids' fun fair and petting zoo. The show played major buildings in the Northeast. Major buildings. Bob's business acumen is the best kept secret in show business. Watching Bob do business is better than an MBA from Harvard!

Phone call from a friend who asked when I worked for Bob; it was in the mid-1980s. Seems like a few months ago; time goes too fast. I was visiting Johnny Herriott at the Orange County Fair in MIddletown, NY when I met Bob and the rest is history.
