Exciting day today in New York City history!
On June 26 back in 1927 “The Cyclone” rollercoaster opened in Coney Island. For 25 cents New Yorkers experienced a whirlwind ride that is still popular today.
The Cyclone was declared a New York City landmark on July 12, 1988, and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places on June 26, 1991.
On the video below experience this ride and meet New Yorker Howie Lipstein. Howie’s been riding the Cyclone every season for 58 years!
