"Roller Coaster Kids; Tales of 1960's Coney Island" is a Brooklyn artist's wild coming of age memoir that chronicles the author's many friendships and adventures while growing up in the unique Brooklyn, New York neighborhood of Coney Island during the tumultuous decade of the 1960's. Roller Coaster Kids, Tales of 1960's reads like a Brooklyn, New York, Tom Sawyer, Huck Finn adventure. By the end of the 1950's, only one grand historic amusement park remained in Coney Island, George C. Tilyou's Steeplechase Park. Who better to tell this classic Brooklyn, Coney Island story than the author, who is very likely the last little rascal to go on a ride in Steeplechase Park before it was demolished in 1966.
