Coney Island and Astroland


by: Charles Denson
Coney Island is a unique New York City neighborhood and a place of exciting innovation, where the roller coaster and the hot dog were introduced to the world, the glow of a million bare lightbulbs at Luna Park dazzled early visitors, and rocket rides at Astroland fueled intergalactic fantasies. Coney Island served as the pressure valve for New York, drawing millions to its famous beach on sweltering weekends. Astroland Park, created at the dawn of the space age, was the vision of Dewey and Jerome Albert.

Seattle's Luna Park


by: Aaron J. Naff
Luna Park emerged on the north end of Alki Beach during the golden age of American amusement parks. Billed as “the Nation’s Greatest Playground on the Pacific Coast,” the park introduced the city to a host of novel attractions. Pleasure-seekers rode shimmering horses, thundered down the roller coaster, and marveled at daredevils and sideshows. There were games to be played, prizes to be won. Thousands swam in the waters of its natatorium and twirled across the floor of its dance hall. The park’s glittering nighttime display shone across the bay and arrested the attention of the city.
