The Wonder Wheel was erected in 1920 and stands 150 feet high and holds 144 people at once. Its unusual design incorporates sections of curved tracks connecting an outer wheel and a smaller inner wheel, with 16 swinging cars which roll back and forth between the two wheels. There are also 8 stationary cars. All of the cars give riders panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean. Photo and full interview appear in our book NEW YORK NIGHTS.
