Examiner - A piece of Michael Jackson will live on at Coney Island

Excerpt -

A piece of the infamous Neverland Ranch now resides in Brooklyn for children of all ages to enjoy! The "Dragon Wagon Kiddie Coaster" was purchased by Earl "Butch" Butler, CEO of Butler Amusements, last year along with three other rides from Michael Jackson's former compound in California.

Butler is old friends with Joe Sitt, who runs "Dreamland Park" on the former Astroland site at Coney Island. And when told that the Brooklyn beachside getaway was in desperate need of new rides Butler sent out the Dragon Wagon.

No word yet on whether the ride will feature a tribute to Michael Jackson, but I sure hope so!
