Nice shot.  I wonder how many know what that tower-like structure really is.

Thanks for all of your comments.  The following is the description about the tower from Wikipedia:

 

“The Parachute Jump is a defunct amusement ride in Coney Island, Brooklyn, New York, whose iconic open-frame steel structure remains a Brooklyn landmark. 250 feet (76 m) tall and weighing 170 tons (150 tonnes), it has been called the “Eiffel Tower of Brooklyn”.[2][3]

It was originally built for the 1939 New York World’s Fair in Flushing Meadows–Corona Park, Queens,[4] and moved to its current site, then part of the Steeplechase Park amusement park, in 1941. It is the only portion of Steeplechase Park still standing today. The ride ceased operations in 1964, when the park shut down for good.”

 

 

Here is the close look.  I took this picture last July.

Very nice Justin! I like the deep blue color of the sky and the cemetery. It is a nice subject to photograph at night.
