Linda Kramer Evans shares fond memories of visiting her Great-Aunt Molly Moran who lived in the house under the Thunderbolt roller coaster. During the 1950s, Evans and her parents and brothers would visit Coney Island on Sundays from their home in Long Island. As the eldest of eight children, Evan's great-aunt played an important role and her home was a family gathering place.  The kids loved it when the house shook as the coaster coursed overhead, says Evans, who recalls the fun days and her family history.
