I just lifted this image off Facebook Can Anyone confirm that Coney Island Amusement park has been destroyed? I know there are a lot of fakes going around.


Ok I have tried a different image site.

Thanks for the quick reply

A lot of history there I'm hoping as a positive the rebuild will create lots of jobs as it does here when we get cyclones in Aus.
Solidarity for the people affected...

Look at the bends on the steel legs of the pier, built to hold a pier no less. The severe stress on the rollercoaster from just one angle. Photoshop? Smh.

CONEY ISLAND: The famed wooden boardwalk on Coney Island in Brooklyn flooded, but the water had started receded by Tuesday morning. The seaside aquarium had been submerged under 14 feet of water. Officials were surveying the damage. The historic Cyclone wooden rollercoaster was still standing, as was the Ferris wheel. The homes didn't fare as well. One gated community at the tip of the island, called Seagate, was devastated, with some houses flattened. After the floodwaters receded, Carlo Muraco grimly assessed the damage to the arcade business he has owned for 25 years about a block from Coney Island's boardwalk. Opening up his machines to retrieve tokens, the 48-year-old lifelong Coney Island resident estimated the damage would cost him $200,000. "I got wrecked, and I don't have insurance," he said. "Most of this stuff is waterlogged. I never expected this." At least nine people were arrested for stealing from stores in the area, and police were investigating. www.startribune.com...

I'm almost positive those pictures are from the Jersey Shore. Seaside Heights I think. Its in quite a few threads here. As far as coney island I have no idea just that that pic isn't it.

ETA : It's Seaside. See this thread :

That picture is in Wildwood, NJ.
Moreys Piers.

ETA: Nope. Seaside Heights.
Geez it is all so unrecognizable.

Thanks. A place as iconic as coney island being destroyed would be big nyc news.
Never listen to hipsters. Theyre only good for cupcakes.

Hope this helps:

Sandy wreaked havoc in Coney Island, a place better known for hot-dog eating contests than natural disasters. But the superstorm turned houses into piles of boards and bricks, their foundations visible and water still spouting from pipes. Many houses along the water were either completely washed away or leveled. No deaths or injuries were reported.


Many of Coney Island's landmarks, including Nathan's Famous Hotdogs and the old Cyclone rollercoaster, showed no visible damage. Sandy's high water had piled sand up to 2 feet high on the famous boardwalk.

So it's not Coney Island?

The Warriors is where I first heard of Coney Island.
