Marion Kantrowitz

Rode the Cyclone at 4 years old

Marion is 75 years old and tells the story of first coming to Coney Island with her grandfather and riding the Cyclone when she was four years old. She subsequently took her children to Steeplechase regularly and then five years ago, she rode the Cyclone with her granddaughter. Marion also recalls riding the Parachute Jump and, much to her mother's chagrin, gaining weight at Nathan's as a child, where everything cost 10 cents.
