In 2002 the Parachute Jump was disassembled for a thorough structural rehabilitation and repainting. Sections of the Jump were placed in the parking lot of Keyspan Park for sand blasting, painting and member replacement. This photograph is looking down the length of a tower arm, from the outermost section towards the center of the tower. The hole just past the end of the gantry in the foreground routed the cable downward for coupling with the parachute-and-seat assembly.
