And the march towards a "revitalized" Coney Island continues!

Forty years after it was shut down, Coney Island's famed Parachute Jump got a new lease on life last night. Thanks to pressure from Brooklyn's elected mascot Marty Markowitz the 277-foot Jump will now light up the Brooklyn sky 365 days a year. Artist Leni Schwendinger designed the new light display of which there are six configurations which will switch, like the Empire State Building, over the course of the year. The Jump will be lit up from dusk till midnight in the summer and dusk till 11 p.m. in the winter and should be visible from a considerable distance. Oh, and, uh, we love it.
