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 shows the inside of one of two large enclosures where sand blasting and painting took place. The pyramid-shaped lower section of the Jump's aerial beacon and portions of the central section of the tower can be seen.
