Morning Mug: Brooklyn Forever!


I always thought it would have been so much fun if the Powers That Be could have made this former ride functional in the way that it used to be (starting at the 1:15 mark in the video).

  1. Thanks for sharing this. That used to be the view from my family’s 20th floor Luna Park windows. We used to tell the time by looking for the Nathan’s hot dog clock on its corner of Stillwell and Surf Aves.

  2. Kudos to Erica. But the lighting is Marty Markowitz’s monument to wasteful government spending.

  3. I appreciate the kind words, but this is not my photo. With little exception, neither are the majority of Morning Mug photos, which are sent in by different readers of Sheepshead Bites. Photo credit always appears beneath the image, along with a boiler plate encouraging readers to please send in their photos to us.
