Those 100 Things

Long Beach and Rose Park have had some heady experiences back in the day! There is a great deal to unpack about our closely held and revered “Pike”. You may be hearing about the famous Cyclone Racer in the near future – energy is mobilizing to restore in some way. There is a contemporary rendition of the roller coaster across Shoreline! And of course, The Pike Restaurant on Retro Row. The Pike has seeped into a collective consciousness. Tattoos – yes! Those tattoo art forms are still a standard world-wide.

So let’s brush up on The Pike and Cyclone Racer! Here is the wiki on it. And here is what our LB Public Library has….books and audio tapes.
