Coney Island Parachute Jump

In 2008 as part of a multi-disciplinary team of professionals charged with revitalizing this iconic structure, DGA has led the effort to develop a new lighting approach that augments and significantly extends the reach and vitality of the Parachute Jump's nighttime presence. Our approach was balanced by the historic significance of the structure, while acknowledging the expression of Coney Island as a source of considerable Brooklyn pride. Multiple options balanced by rigorous cost analysis were prepared for review by various stakeholders including the New York City Landmarks Commission. This project is temporarily on hold due to funding constraints.
