Randy Kasper and her family were original tenants of Luna Park Houses' Building 5, Apartment 19K. They lived in the newly opened high-rise housing complex from 1962, when she was five, until 1968.  She shares memories of windows facing the ocean and Astroland and falling asleep to the screams of riders on the Cyclone roller coaster. Kasper remembers learning to ride her bike on Luna Park's roomy outdoor terraces and going to Astroland, Nathan's, and the neighborhood mom and pop stores.
