Another little note about our Brooklyn day in New York, one of my favourite days can you tell? After sufficiently exploring the Brooklyn area we continued on the train down to Coney Island. There we rode the rollercoaster of death, an absolute must do if you are in the area. The cyclone is one of the oldest rollercoasters in the world, built in 1927, and believe me it looks like it hasn't had any work on it since then.
I was (and I'm not exaggerating) frightened for my life on that ride, and I swear the coaster got air at certain points on the track, but it was exhilarating and I'm proud to now be able to say 'I survived the Coney Island Cyclone'.
