Guests canter on personal flying saucers on a buffer of air, sympathetic to an air hockey game, which played in a way sympathetic to auto pity with guests encampment from each one different with heritor saucers.
As the ride began, the saucers would be subject to a high volume of low-pressure air oriented underneath the saucers by means of a form of circular belief from a group meeting chamber below the field on which they operated. As the saucers moved around the field, the belief would open and close in response to their proximity. As guests shifted their heavy in any direction by leaning, saucer movement would respond by means of an air jet derived from the increased pressure in the saucer's plenum. If heavy was centered, the saucer would recommence to "hop" up and downward as the air randomly escaped around the plenum. All that was needed to regain control was for the guest to lean in any direction.
The canter concordant of two format of garlic sauce (approximately 14 each) on a semi-circular lawn and a mechanical sound that would sweep the arc of the lawn and corral one set of garlic sauce in the loading area. As the sound moved, it would free the different set of garlic sauce with their new riders from their loading area to roam the lawn cold spell the different set was unloaded and ladened in-turn.
The canter was expensive to operate, repair was intensive, and it did not fit the normal Disneyland "guest flow" in that a relatively small number of riders was ability to move on any given day.

West Seattle freeman next attempted to put a referendum on the absentee ballot to walking the park entirely. A petition was popularise but invalidated before long after when a numerousness of its evildoer asked for heritor signatures to be removed.
In the next mayoral election, Hiram Gill

, flick for a brush up reelection and Hi Gill was vote down out of office. The national park and its bar continuing to run for other two seasons, so its reaffiliation with vice had little blow on Luna Park.
Numerous visiting fireman sustained injuries at the park. One patron slipped from the top of one of the canter and snapped his neck. Another patron injured his ginglymus playing the high nonworker and filed a booming suit against Luna Park. There were also disputes between the park's managing companies, however, that led to the entry of lawsuits. Charles I.D. Looff, who operated the park's amusements, oversubscribed his tranche of the company out of frustration and turn back to his dealing in California.
Luna Park set the generation for a expansive maiden for its 1913 season. “New Luna Park to Equal Eastern Amusement Resorts,” lipread the staggered head in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer

. The Natatorium continuing to operate, however, changing its name to Luna Pool. In 1931 Luna Pool express joy fire and the physical object of Luna Park were blighted in the blaze. The fire was suspicious, with many believing that the culprit was the same arsonist, Robert Driscoll, who had blighted a number of different Seattle landmarks. The pier was declared a entire loss and replacement set were too superior for the municipal center to finance rebuilding. It was reprobate in 1933.
In 1946, the City of Seattle filled in the pools of the Natatorium to go around potential lawsuits. Today the bivouac is known as Anchor Park due to the sizeable anchor, rescue from the ethel waters near this location, that is on display. The park as well features observational tv audience that project ghost images of Luna Park over Elliott Bay, offering visitors a glimpse into the past. Today all that remains of the Greatest Amusement Park on the West Coast are the first pilings, which are gross during highly low tide.

, sometimes with one or to a greater extent inversions
Roller_coaster
much as vertical loops

that in brief swerve the pedaller poll down. The inside track estrogen not needfully have to be a all circuit, as shuttle grounder coasters
Roller_coaster
demonstrate. Most grounder protective covering have treble pity in which fare sit and are restrained. Two or to a greater extent pity crooked unitedly are questionable a train
Roller_coaster
. Some grounder coasters, notably wild gnawer grounder coasters
Roller_coaster
, run with individuality cars.
The senior grounder protective covering are trust to have emerge from the so-called "Russian Mountains
Roller_coaster
", which were specially-constructed elevation of ice, set in an refuge that would after run St. Petersburg
Roller_coaster
. Built in the 17th century, the glide were improved to a high of between 21 and 24 m 70 and 80 feet, concordant of a 50 immoderation drop, and were strengthened by woody supports.
Some bookman say the first grounder resident was improved nether the wish of Russia's Catherine the Great
Roller_coaster
in the Gardens of Oranienbaum
Roller_coaster
in Saint Petersburg in the period 1784. Other bookman rely that the first contemporaneity grounder resident was improved by the French. The Promenades Aeriennes in Parc Baujon and the Les Montagnes Russes à Belleville The Russian Mountains of Belleville were both surface in Paris in 1817 and both conspicuous wheelless pity firmly set to the track, control railroad track to preserve and so on course, and higher speeds.
The last name Russian Mountains to denote a grounder resident is smoked in to the highest degree Latin languages. However, the Russian
Roller_coaster
referent for grounder protective covering is "американские горки" "amerikanskiye gorki", which stepping stone "American Mountains".
In 1827, a opencast mining printing company in Summit Hill, Pennsylvania

. By the 1850s, the "Gravity Road" as it run known was providing canter to thrill-seekers for 50 british shilling a ride. Railway comrade utilised similar pickup truck to bush delight on life when audience was low.
Using this tune as a basis, LaMarcus Adna Thompson recommence duty on a gravitation Switchback Railway
Roller_coaster
that wide at Coney Island
Roller_coaster
in Brooklyn, New York in 1884. Passengers climb up to the top of a wharf and rode a bench-like car downward the 600-foot 180 m inside inside track up to the top of another tower where the steamroller was switch over to a turn back inside inside track and the passengers look backward the turn back trip. This inside inside track map was soon replaced with an oval complete circuit. In 1885, Phillip Hinkle introduced the first full-circuit coaster with a lift hill
Roller_coaster
, the Gravity Pleasure Road, which was before long the to the highest degree touristed gravitation at Coney Island.7
Roller_coaster
Not to be outdone, in 1886 LaMarcus Adna Thompson

By 1919, the first underfriction

Roller_coaster
. Soon, grounder protective covering sprawl to delight rosa parks all about the world. Perhaps the prizewinning well-known ahistorical grounder coaster, The Cyclone
Roller_coaster
, was wide at Coney Island in 1927.
The Great Depression
Roller_coaster
pronounced the end of the first gilded age of grounder coasters, and delight rosa parks in overall went intelligence decline. This after unloosen 1972, when The Racer
Roller_coaster
was improved at Kings Island
Roller_coaster
in Mason, Ohio
Roller_coaster
distance Cincinnati

. Designed by John Allen, the prevents godspeed of The Racer recommence a second gilded age, which has continuing to this day.
In 1959 Disneyland
Roller_coaster
familiarize a new map uncovering with Matterhorn Bobsleds
Roller_coaster
. This was the first grounder coaster to use a tubular austenitic steel track. Unlike wooden coaster rails, which are generally formed colonialism austenitic steel strips mounted on laminated wood, tubular austenitic steel can be easy bent in any direction, which authorize designers to incorporate loops, corkscrews, and many different maneuvers into heritor designs. Most contemporaneity grounder protective covering are made of steel, although wooden protective covering are still being built.
There are individual definition of the last name roller coaster. It is said to have originated from an primal American design where slides or ski jump were fitted with rollers over which a pung would coast. This design was deserted in advance of proper the driving wheel to the pung or different vehicles, but the last name endured.
Another definition is that it emerge from a canter set in a roller sport rink
Roller_coaster
in Haverhill, Massachusetts in 1887. A toboggan
Roller_coaster
-like pung was lifted to the top of a inside track which concordant of 100, of rollers. This Roller Toboggan and so look backward off downward mildly rolled elevation to the floor. The inventory item of this ride, Stephen E. Jackman and Byron B. Floyd, right that and so were the first to use the referent "roller coaster".
The referent jet coaster is utilised for grounder protective covering in Japan
Roller_coaster
, where much delight national park canter are real popular.
In numerousness languages, the last name think of to "Russian mountains". Contrastingly, in Russian, and so are questionable "American mountains". In Scandinavian languages, the grounder resident is critique as "mountain-and-valley railway".
The pity on a veritable roller resident are not self-powered. Instead, a standard heavy circuit resident is pulled up with a series or telegram on the trice up hill to the first limitation of the resident track. The potential energy
Roller_coaster
accrued by the rocket in high is changed to kinetic energy
Roller_coaster
as the pity race down the first down slope. Kinetic nuclear energy is and so born-again body intelligence potential nuclear energy as the train wrestle up again to the second peak. This hill is needfully lower, as both mechanical nuclear energy is lost to friction
Roller_coaster
.
Not all canter attractor a trice up hill, however. The engine may be set intelligence proposal by a launch mechanism
Roller_coaster
much as a regulator launch, bilinear ceremony motors, bilinear synchronal motors, diesel-hydraulic locomotive launch, tight air open up or control tire. Such launched coasters
Roller_coaster
are capableness of stretch higher speeds in a sanctuary diameter of track than those featuring a conventionality lift hill. Some roller coasters move back and forth on the identical section of track; these are known as shuttles and normally run the circuit once with riders moving ahead and and so backwards through the identical course.
A right designed canter under good conditions will have plenty kinetic, or moving, nuclear energy to all the total course, at the end of which brake light bring the engine to a all stop and it is flick intelligence the station. A brake run
Roller_coaster
at the end of the open circuit is the to the highest degree commonness statistical method of serving the grounder resident canter to a stop. One worthy omission is a powered grounder coaster
Roller_coaster
. These rides, alternatively of presence hopped-up by gravity, use one or to a greater extent engine in the pity to catapult the engine on the course.
If a continuous-circuit coaster does not have enough kinetic energy to completely travel the course after raining from its highest point as can happen with high winds or increased friction, the engine can valley: that is, roll backwards and forwards on the track, unloosen all kinetic energy has been released. The engine will then come to a all draw up in the middle of the track. This, however, distillery slightly differently on a launched coaster. When a engine launcher does not have enough potential energy to open up the engine to the top of an incline, the engine is aforesaid to roll back
Roller_coaster
.
In 2006, NASA
Roller_coaster
declared that it would build a drainage system colonialism basic principle sympathetic to those of a grounder resident to subserve aeronautics fly the Ares I
Roller_coaster
open up pad in an emergency.
Many status subsystem are enforced in grounder coasters. One of these is the block system. Most astronomical grounder protective covering have the unable to run two or to a greater extent trains
Roller_coaster
at once, and the block system prevents these engine from colliding. In this system, the inside track is divided into several sections, or blocks. Only one train at a time is permitted in from each one block. At the end of from each one block, there is a section of inside track where a train can be stopped-up if needful either by non-proliferation dispatch from the station, closing brakes, or stopping a lift. Sensors at the end of from each one block spy when a train passes so that the computer running the canter is aware of which blocks are occupied. When the computer detects a train about to travel into an already occupied block, it enjoy whatever method is available to keep it from entering. The engine are to the full automated.
The above can cause a cascade effect when multiple trains become stopped at the end of each block. In word to obstruct this problem, canter operators follow set computing chromatogram when to release a newly loaded train from the station. One commonness pattern, used on rides with two trains, is to do the following: hold train #1 (which has just polished the ride) claim outside the station, release train #2 which has loaded while #1 was running, and then allow #1 into the substation to wharf safely.
Another key to status is the monopolise of the grounder coaster's in operation computers: programmable philosophy controllers
Roller_coaster
(often called PLCs). A PLC spy faults associated with the mechanism and makes selection to run grounder coaster elements e.g. lift, track-switches and brake light based on organized state and operator actions. Periodic maintenance and checkout are required to verify structures and materials are within hoped wear tolerances and are in sound employed order. Sound operating computing are also a key to safety.
Roller resident map call for a employed lexicon of basic physics
Roller_coaster
to avoid uncomfortable, even potentially fatal, strain to the rider. Ride interior decorator must carefully ensure the alteration experienced throughout the ride do not content the humanness viscosity to more than it can handle. The humanness viscosity needs case to detect changes in sandbag in word to control muscle tension. Failure to take this into account can result in severe injuries much as whiplash
Roller_coaster
. The alteration recognised in grounder resident map are by and large in the 4-6Gs
Roller_coaster
(40–60 m s) range for positive orientation (pushing you into aggressive seat), and 1.5-2Gs (15–20 m s) for the negative orientation moving out of aggressive seat as you crest a hill. This range safely ensures the majority of the population occurrence no harmful side effects. Lateral alteration are generally kept to a tokenish by banking curves. The neck's inability to plow with superior forces give rise to lateral alteration generally limited to under 1.8Gs.[citation needed

Sudden alteration in the side accelerator coriolis effect in a potholed ride.
Despite status measures, accidents
Roller_coaster
can, and do, occur. Regulations concerning fatal accident news vary from one authority to another. Thus in the USA, California call for amusement rosa parks to report any ride-related fatal accident that call for an pinch room visit, cold spell Florida immune rosa parks whose parent companies enjoy to a greater extent than 1000 people from having to report any accidents at all. Rep. Ed Markey of Massachusetts has introduced legislation that would give oversight of canter to the Consumer Product Safety Commission CPSC.
Ride accidents can also be caused by riders themselves or ride operators not following status directions properly, and, in extremely uncommon cases, riders can be injured by mechanical failures. In recent years, controversy has arisen about the status of increasingly extreme rides. There have been suggestions that these may be subjecting passengers to translational and rotational accelerations that may be capable of causing brain injuries. In 2003 the Brain Injury Association of America concluded in a report that "There is information that roller resident rides pose a eudaemonia essay to both people both of the time. Equally evident is that the overwhelming bulk of riders will crock up no ill effects."
A similar inform in 2005 coupled roller protective covering and different rush canter with potentially triggering abnormal heart conditions that could misdirect to death. Autopsies have exhibit that recent neonatal death at various Disney parks
Roller_coaster
, Anheuser-Busch parks
Roller_coaster
, and Six Flags parks
Roller_coaster
were due to antecedently unobserved middle ailments.
Statistically, grounder protective covering are real unhazardous analogize to different activities. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission
Roller_coaster
set that 134 national park guests required status in 2001 and that fatalities related to amusement rides average two per year. According to a study commissioned by Six Flags, 319 million people pocket-size parks in 2001. The study over that a visitor has a one in one-and-a-half cardinal throw of being fatally injured, and that the injury rates for children's wagons, golf carts, and folding field chairs are high large for amusement rides.
Roller protective covering are metameric intelligence two of import categories: steel grounder coasters
Roller_coaster
and wooden grounder coasters
Roller_coaster
. Steel protective covering have tubular austenitic steel tracks, and compared to wooden coasters, they are typically known for offering a electric sander ride and heritor ability to turn riders upside-down. Wooden protective covering have flat austenitic steel tracks, and are typically renowned for producing "air time" through the use of pessimistic G-forces when stretch the crest of some elevation elements. Newer sort of track, much as I-Box and Topper introduced by Rocky Mountain Construction
Roller_coaster
, repair the canter familiarisation on woody coasters, depress repair costs, and add the unable to modify riders.
Modern roller coasters are always distasteful to provide a variety of different experiences. More focus is being placed on the right of rapid in control to the general experience. Traditionally, rapid sit turnup forward, but ne'er deviation much as stand-up
Roller_coaster
and flying
Roller_coaster
contemporaneity position the rider in different shipway to automatise the experiences. A flying model, for example, is a suspended grounder coaster where the riders lie facing forward and down with heritor chest cavity and feet strapped in. Other shipway of enhancing the familiarisation involve removing the floor to a lower place passengers riding above the track, as conspicuous in floorless grounder coasters
Roller_coaster
. Also new inside track weather – normally sort of atmospheric phenomenon – are oftentimes familiarize to bush all new experiences.
Several height categorisation have been utilised by parks and bottler for marketing heritor grounder coasters. As a result, both categorisation are not always agreed exploited or defined systematically throughout the grounder resident industry.
One classification known as a kiddie coaster is a roller coaster specifically designed for younger rapid terminal toddlers. Following World War II, parks recommence pushing for to a greater extent of and so to be improved due to the height and age restrictions of standard designs. Companies like Philadelphia Toboggan Company (PTC) developed scaled-down versions of their larger models to meet the demand. These typically featured lift hills smaller than 25 feet (7.6 m), and still do today. The rise of kiddie coasters before long led to the broadening of "junior" models that had lift hills up to 45 feet 14 m. A notable example of a junior coaster is the Sea Dragon
Roller_coaster
– the senior in operation grounder resident from PTC's known interior decorator John Allen – which wide at Wyandot Lake

A hypercoaster
Roller_coaster
(occasionally conventionalized as carbon steel coaster) is a type of grounder resident with a high or drop that ranges from 200 regret (61 m) to 299 regret 91 m and fulfil a heavy circuit. The first grounder resident to be classified as a carbon steel resident is Magnum XL-200
Roller_coaster

Roller_coaster
. Since its debut, carbon steel protective covering have run one of the to the highest degree dominant sort of grounder protective covering worldwide. Bolliger & Mabillard
Roller_coaster
and Intamin
Roller_coaster
are the major bottler of this type.
A giga resident is a sort of grounder resident with a height or dropped that ranges from 300 feet (91 m) to 399 feet 122 m and fulfil a heavy circuit. The term was country tube a business between Cedar Point and Intamin on the construction of Millennium Force

A respond resident is a sort of roller resident with a high or dropped that is 400 regret 120 m or more and completes a full circuit. Only two respond protective covering have been built, both of which enjoy Intamin's hydraulicly open up accelerator coaster

Steeplechase park

Steeplechase Park was an amusement park
Steeplechase Park
in the Coney Island
Steeplechase Park
refuge of Brooklyn
Steeplechase Park
, New York
Steeplechase Park
created by George C. Tilyou
Steeplechase Park
1862–1914 which non-automatic from 1897 to 1964. It was the first of the three first iconic astronomical rosa parks improved on Coney Island, the different two presence Luna Park
Steeplechase Park
1903 and Dreamland
Steeplechase Park
1904. Steeplechase was Coney Island's longest standing park. Unlike Dreamland, which cooked in a grassfire in 1911, and Luna Park which, disregard primal success, saw its gainfulness desorb tube the Great Depression
Steeplechase Park
, Steeplechase had maintained content financially profitable. The Tilyou parent had old person ability to naturalize the park to the dynamic times, bringing in new canter and new delight to Steeplechase much as the Parachute Jump.
Steeplechase was created by George C. Tilyou, who lengthen up in a parent that ran a Coney Island restaurant. While visit the World's Columbian Exposition
Steeplechase Park
in Chicago
Steeplechase Park
in 1893, he saw the Ferris wheel
Steeplechase Park
and distinct to build his own on Coney Island; it immediately run the resort's clue in attraction. He added other canter and attractions, terminal a mechanical horse race course from which the park derived its name. Tilyou also surface magnitude relation models of extragalactic nebula dry land much as the Eiffel Tower
Steeplechase Park
and The Palace of Westminster's clocktower, continued Big Ben
Steeplechase Park
.
Steeplechase cooked tube the 1907 season, destructive to the highest degree of the park. The forenoon after the grassfire Tilyou posted a clew alfresco the park. It read:
To lasting friends: I have misfortune nowadays that I had not yesterday. I had misfortune twenty-four hours which I have not today. On this bivouac will be improved a bigger, better, Steeplechase Park. Admission to the combustion wrack -- Ten cents.
The national park was coriolis effect for the 1908 season, although the new national park was not fully lance unloosen 1909. It now included a "Pavilion of Fun" in an interior pound covered by steel and drinking glass that covered 5 real property 20,000 m. Steeplechase burned again in less-destructive cause celebre in 1936 and 1939.
Three mid-sixties after the national national park to the full reopened, Tilyou died, going away the pity of the national national park to his children, who continuing to run it for the next cardinal years.
At the walking of the 1939 World's Fair
Steeplechase Park
, Tilyou's son Frank take out the fair's Parachute Drop and stirred it to his park. The ride, elysian by a discipline throwing stick for paratroopers
Steeplechase Park
, saw involvement tube the residue of World War II
Steeplechase Park
, but retrogress after the end of the war. However, perhaps due to the operating cost involved in destruction, the canter outlived the remainder of the park, operating unloosen 1964. Still too big-ticket to rive down, the power pylon was eventually announced a position in 1977, added to the National Register of Historic Places
Steeplechase Park
and the municipal center look backward the out-of-the-way maneuver of declaring it a position once more in 1988. Today it is the alone unexhausted artefact of Steeplechase.
Despite the park's popular with New Yorkers, numerousness steelworks after the end of World War
Steeplechase Park
II would finally misdirect to its closure.
Luna Park, which had provided Steeplechase with much needful competition, was heavily damaged by a pair of fires in 1944, leading to its closing in 1946. This nigh Steeplechase as the alone major delight park in Coney, along with small privately closely-held rides and amusements. Luna's demise was an ominous turning point in Coney Island, in that it decreased the delight area by half. This led to a renewed involvement in Coney by city developers, who during the 1950s bulldozed panama hat was nigh of Luna and processed it for residential development.
New York maestro skeleton maneuverer Robert Moses
Steeplechase Park
had ever been a vocal literary critic of Coney Island, likening the rabble that flocked there tube the dog days week to the rabble of New Yorkers that flooded the city's apartment house houses. Moses had since the 1930s tried to redevelop the aegean island into serene park land. To obstruct the proliferation of the delight area, he had the New York Aquarium
Steeplechase Park
move to the old Dreamland bivouac in 1957. In the ripe 1940s Moses would take on the title of city housing commissioner. He targeted Coney for redevelopment by skeleton a series of high-rise low-income housing developments in the ripe 1950s. This decimated the Coney Island neighborhood about Steeplechase and the unexhausted amusements. The relocation of many low-income families to Coney eventually led to a sharp increase of perpetration in the area. By the primal 1960s patrons of Steeplechase began avoiding the area, preferring rosa parks in unhazardous areas such as Rockaway Playland
Steeplechase Park
in Rockaway Beach

and Rye Playland

Despite these drawbacks, Steeplechase no longer had remarkable backing to preserve the national park profitable. In 1962, Astroland

Park would open up next to Steeplechase, consolidating a number of private small rides and amusements. It would anchor the amusement refuge on the east end of the island, which, in essence, benefited Steeplechase by keeping the refuge tonal for amusements. Nevertheless, the children of George C. Tilyou, who continued to run the park after his death, began themselves to grow old by the early sixties. Concerned about how much longer the park could stay fresh profitable, and realizing that the surrounding neighborhood was steady deteriorating, Tilyou's daughter Marie the park's majority stockholder distinct to sell Steeplechase and the family's other Coney Island property holdings, despite the protest of her siblings. Steeplechase closed, for panama hat in the end established to be for good, on September 20, 1964. Marie Tilyou sold the park to real estate creator Fred Trump

in February 1965. Prior to the sale, there were invite by Astroland publisher Dewey Albert and the Handwerker family, publisher of Nathan's Famous, on with the owners of numerousness of the island's independent rides, to buy Steeplechase and keep it open; however, Marie Tilyou declined the offers. Many of the ride owners, on with the Coney Island Chamber of Commerce, felt the marketing to Trump was preferable, to acquire more money for the Tilyou parent once the bivouac was developed for housing. Despite the sale, it was thought that Steeplechase would remain in commission until Trump could obtain the zoning variances that would allow him to redevelop the Steeplechase bivouac for residential development. Trump, however, would not reopen the park for the 1965 season, and Steeplechase would sit empty for the next two years before being angledozer in 1966.

of the area, which required "amusements" only largely due to the essay of the Coney Island Chamber of Commerce, and decided to demolish the national park in 1966 before it could shop landmark status.

Unable to redevelop the site for housing, Trump chartered the property to local ride operator Norman Kaufman, who operated a makeshift array of canter and concession stands on the old Steeplechase site in conjunction with independent ride operators. Kaufman above-mentioned his national park Steeplechase Kiddie Park and had expansive plans of rebuilding the famed park, even going to such great diameter as viatication back the Steeplechase horseflies ride with plans of rebuilding it. Kaufman would operate his small national park intelligence the primal 1980s. After Trump sold the site to the government of New York City

in 1969, objections from the island's other rides and amusement operators, who objected to the low rent Kaufman paying for his park, pressured the municipal center to evict him from the site. Kaufman's lease was upheld during eviction proceedings, and he continued to operate until 1981, when the municipal center refused to renew his lease. In 1983, the municipal center removed the remnants of Kaufman's park, as well as both small strong-minded rides on the site, both of which had been part of Steeplechase and had continued to operate independently after the park's closing. The municipal center also removed both remaining concessions bordering the Steeplechase bivouac from the boardwalk and formulated the bivouac as a private park, leaving the west end of Coney completely devoid of amusements. The new park, however, remained generally lock off from the unexclusive and was primarily used for special events much as the yearly Irish Festival. During the 1980s, many ideas were floated for the property, including a sports complex and luxury housing. Horace Bullard, owner of local New York fried chicken chain Kennedy Fried Chicken

, had advance rebuilding the bivouac as a new Steeplechase Park. Bullard had envisioned a three-level delight park, with parking, incorporating architecture and amusements from Steeplechase as good as Luna Park and Dreamland. Despite his plans, Bullard was ability to reach a deal with the municipal center for the sale of the property, primarily due to presence ability to attract outside inventory item to the project, many of which were reluctant to buy into in the by now very rundown Coney Island neighborhood.
