04/19/13 Ferris Wheel is Down

Posted: April 24, 2013 in Uncategorized

The Ferris Wheel (Big Wheel) on the Funtown Pier in Seaside Park, NJ is on the ground.  Workers pulled her down on the 18th.  After hours of no success during the night, at dawn I was finally able to get to the ferris wheel laying on her side. It’s a pretty sad sight to see her on the beach getting pelted with wave after wave.  I hope they remove her quickly, the “Circle of Memories” has finished her job.

This is how I will always remember the Ferris Wheel.

    I see a book in your future. You’ve documented everything since the beginning and have plenty of fantastic photographs. If you haven’t thought of this already you should give it serious consideration. I know I would love to own a copy.

  2. I am sad they could not save it. It did not look like there was structural damage
