"Roller Coaster Kids; Tales of 1960's Coney Island" is a Brooklyn artist's coming of age memoir that chronicles the author's many wild experiences while growing up in the unique Brooklyn, New York Neighborhood of Coney Island during the tumultuous decade of the 1960's. One outrageous Coney little rascal story follows another, from almost being emasculated in a friendly chicken fight, to how his 1st. grade classmate Dexter's friendship informed his views about the ongoing civil rights movement, to almost being kidnapped by a strange, very lazy old lady, to exploring an old Sea Gate mansion about to be demolished by a giant bulldozer, "Roller Coaster Kids, Tales of 1960's" reads like a Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn adventure. By 1960 only one grand amusement park remained in Coney Island, George. C Tilyou's Steeplechase Park. Who better to tell this classic Brooklyn, Coney Island coming of age true story other than the author, who is very likely the last little rascal to go on a ride in old Steeplechase Park. If you love Brooklyn, New York or just love stories about real life in American, and you have a connection to the historic decade of the 1960's, and you enjoy zany, crazy wild rides.... then this book is for you. It's all Brooklyn, the sights and smells, even the beloved rooftop pigeon coops and the whirring acrobatic flocks taking to the sky above Coney Island. Hey,.............FORGETTABOUTIT!
