The landmarked Coney Island Wonder Wheel.

Current redevelopment efforts may (ha, most likely, this is NYC after all) soon remove the Wonder Wheel and the Parachute jump as the primary features of the Coney Island skyline and replace them with several large scale hotels, an indoor amusement area and SHOPPING SHOPPING SHOPPING.

Redevelopment of the area was promised 20 or more years ago and never quite got there. Currently the Thor development corporation owns most of the land that comprises Coney Island and is working with the city to come up with plans to build up the area. The area is never going back to what it was during the 30's and 40's before air conditioning let people stay at home during the summer instead of heading down to the beach or up to resorts in the Catskills to escape the heat.

As much as the area badly needs the reconstruction, the question is how much of its character will remain and what will draw people to Coney Island after the redevelopment work is done.

Oh, Wonder Wheel, how I love thee. 150 feet tall, proudly revolving counter-clockwise for interesting views of Coney Island and environs. The cars on the inner part of the wheel swing freely on an oval track; you can see how they swing out by the edge of the wheel on the left-hand side when the wheel revolves. The outer cars stay mercifully fixed in place, but there's never a line for them (even though the swinging cars almost outnumber the fixed cars two to one.) The largest Ferris Wheel in operation until London's Millennium Eye opened up, the Wonder Wheel is a bargain at 3 bucks a ride and can really freak out a first-timer.
