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.
That sure do look like a Commerford group. probably same that was in Newark some years back. good people.
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.
