Got plans for this long weekend? If you are staying in the city, might we suggest a trip to Coney Island; home of Nathan's Famous Hot Dogs and one of the world's oldest wooden roller coasters. Looking for a thrill that won't make your life flash before your eyes? Hop in one of the Wonder Wheel's swinging cars instead!
Did you know that the Wonder Wheel -- called an eccentric ferris wheel because of it's moving cars -- gave it's first ride on Memorial Day, 1920?
On this, the last official weekend of summer, celebrate the season with a ride and some free fireworks!
