To Honor 9/11 Hero Answer the Call Offering “Ride Like Vinny” Tickets to the Famed Coney Island Cyclone @ Coney Island Tickets
Jul 26 – Nov 1 all-day
To Honor 9/11 Hero Answer the Call Offering “Ride Like Vinny” Tickets to the Famed Coney Island Cyclone @ Coney Island |  |  |

Money raised benefits Answer the Call (Formerly the N.Y. Police and Fire Widows’ & Children’s Benefit Fund)

“Ride Like Vinny” tickets are now on sale through September 6, to help raise funds for the Answer the Call: N.Y. Police and Fire Widows’ & Children’s Benefit Fund. Each ticket costs $12 and entitles the bearer to one ride on the legendary Coney Island Cyclone through November 1.

The weekend before September 11, 2001, FDNY Captain Vincent Giammona and his wife took their daughters to Coney Island for the day. As they were driving home, Vinny turned back and saw the Cyclone Roller Coaster. He told his family he needed to go back to ride it even though the ride was closed. Vinny spotted a worker and explained his 40th birthday was coming up on Tuesday and that he was a NYC Firefighter. His wish was granted. Vinny was the only one on the roller coaster. He sat in the front car, with one hand up, and a huge smile on his face, while his wife and daughters cheered from behind the fence. Tragically, it was his final birthday wish.

A few days later, on Tuesday, September 11, 2001, Vinny turned 40 years old. Vinny was among the 403 FDNY, NYPD, and PAPD heroes that sacrificed their lives in the line of duty while protecting our city that day.

“Ride Like Vinny” seeks to honor the selfless and heroic spirit with which Vinny and our heroes died, while also remembering and celebrating the incredible spirit with which they lived. The money raised from these special “Ride Like Vinny” tickets will enable the N.Y. Police and Fire Widows’ & Children’s Benefit Fund, known by Answer the Call, to continue to help the families of our fallen heroes. Each “Ride Like Vinny” ticket is good for one admission on The Coney Island Cyclone and can be used any day before November 1, 2017.

Since Answer the Call was founded in 1985 by Former NY Met Daniel “Rusty” Staub, the organization has distributed over $135 million directly to the families of those who lost a loved one in the line of duty. It is the only nonprofit organization that provides immediate and ongoing financial assistance to the families of NYPD, FDNY, and PAPD heroes killed in the line of duty. Answer the Call’s goal is to provide meaningful support for the rest of a widow or widower’s life. In 2017 alone, they will help nearly 600 families and distribute over $4 million.

Thursdays at 10:30 AM

August 3rd- Waiting for Snow in Havana by Carlos Eire
A heartbreaking and beautiful memoir of growing up in a priviledged Havan household—and of being exiled from his own childhood by the Cuban Revolution

September 7th- The Summer Before the War by Helen Simonson
A breathtaking novel of love on the eve of World War I that reaches far beyond the small English town in which it is set.

October 5th- Miller’s Valley by Anna Quindlen
In a small town on the verge of big change, a young woman unearths deep secrets about her family and unexpected truths about herself. Miller’s Valley is an emotionally powerful story about a family you will never forget.

November 2nd- Elizabeth Cady Stanton: An American Life by Lori Ginzberg
Elizabeth Cady Stanton was a brilliant activist-intellectual. That nearly all of her ideas―that women are entitled to seek an education, to own property, to get a divorce, and to vote―are now commonplace is in large part because she worked tirelessly to extend the nation’s promise of radical individualism to women.

December 7th- Falling Angels by Tracy Chevalier
Told through a variety of shifting perspectives—wives and husbands, friends and lovers, masters and their servants, and a gravedigger’s son—Falling Angels is graced with the luminous imagery. Falling Angels is a dazzling tour de force.
