Parachute Jump at Coney Island in Brooklyn, New York

Once upon a time, in the 1940s, you could stand atop this 262 foot-tall metal structure and parachute your way down. Defunct since 1968, you can still view the tower at Coney Island and stand there wondering if you could take the plunge yourself.
