Coney Island, Luna Park and Surf Avenue, 1912 a 20x200 Vintage Edition taken 102 years ago. Today is the Mermaid Parade!

I saw this on my radar and was like “oh shoot its Luna Park”. 
Out of curiosity, can anyone tell me if Luna Park was on the South or the North side of Surf Avenue, none of the photos I’ve ever seen made that particularly clear.
I know Dreamland and Steeplechase were DEFINITELY on the South side of the street but I’ve always been curious about Luna Park’s orientation along the street.
Obviously I’m talking about the historical Luna Park and not the revival built on the remains of Astroland.

Taken from the Brooklyn Bridge pedestrian boardwalk in March, 2014.
I honestly didn’t even realize the Empire State Building was framed perfectly within the tower of the Manhattan Bridge until just moments ago.
What a neat accident.

When I visited DUMBO and Lower Manhattan more than June to film my Real Unova videos, I didn’t realize that I was photographing the new World Trade Center until November when I returned to find the building was now beginning to dominate the skyline. As I’m posting this it’s still not completely constructed.

I honestly just completely overlooked this building somehow.

You can see it at about 50% completion in The Dark Knight Rises. Also, that’s the bridge that Batman uses as a canvas for his burning bat signal when he returns to Gotham.

It’s also the same bridge they adapted into the Skyarrow Bridge in Pokémon Black and White.

BMT D-Type Triplex Car by David Wong 6 on Flickr.I’m so happy and proud that I actually got to ride in this subway train once.
It has a STEAM whistle. It sounded so creepy and awesome inside the tunnels. 
And the look on the people’s faces when it would roll by the platform unexpectedly.
Now, according to what I understand, this train is no longer operable and is unlikely to be repaired.

Yes, I did yet another one of these.
Someone on a forum requested it, and I wasn’t entirely satisfied with the one I did about a year ago, so here it is again.

Longer than the Golden Gate baby!

USS Macon over New York, in 1931

Not to be a know-it-all, but that isn’t the USS Macon, its the USS Los Angeles.
You  can tell because of the external engine cars and the lack of a  secondary control deck in the lower tail fin, which were distinctive  features of both the Macon and Akron. The Los Angeles’ gondola is also  of a very different shape than the Akron and Macon.
The USS Los Angeles had external engine cars due to the risk the  engines igniting the irritable hydrogen the ship was initially designed  to fly with when it was constructed by Zeppelin in Germany.
The  Akron and Macon, being designed in America to fly with helium, were  drawn with engine rooms inside the envelope and cool propeller pod  things on the outside that could be used to help better maneuver the  ship.
I’m no expert though, I’m just regurgitating stuff I’ve read in books about airships.
All that aside, awesome photo.

I rode the Wonder Wheel in Coney Island today! I also visited a national park. I had such a crazy I did both of those things.

I was mildly admonished for riding one of the white stationary cars, but I mainly came to film footage for future Real Unova videos, so….
