Journal 11: Matt Kennedy

OBSERVATION: Matt's family was not from the United States, but they all immigrated to the united states. Matt was a director and coney island chamber of commerce. He is in charge of businesses in Coney Island. The photo of Matt is the the cyclone. what is the cyclone and i looked it up on why its such a big thing it said "Coney Island History Comes Alive on the Cyclone Roller Coaster!The Mother of American roller coaster culture and the “Big Momma” of Coney Island, the Cyclone tops everyone’s list of things to do in New York City. Get ready to shake, rattle, rumble and roll over 2,640 feet of track featuring 12 drops and 27 elevation changes that still has the stuff to take your breath away. Slowly rise to panoramic heights and grip the bar tight as you go over the ledge on an exhilarating 85-foot, 60-degree plunge at speeds of 60 mph. It’s an all-time classic amusement park ride that’s kept coaster lovers coming back since the Cyclone roller coaster first debuted on June 26, 1927." (also goes in my research), but you can see  that Kennedy means well in aspect he wants the best for Coney Island. Brooklyn New York

CONNECTION: Matt seems very family oriented. Matt spent a lot of time with his grandparents as do I. Do to the fact my family is all super close. My Grandparents and I are very close like Matt and his grandma are. 

WHAT QUESTION: In the story about Matt and how its only two pages i don't really have any questions. but what made him get into his job.

the question I had was what is czar is Czar is a Russian word for ruler or emperor. Those kinds of czars are long gone, but we still use the word to describe people in charge of something important. Up until the early 20th century, the ruler in Russia was a man called a czar who had total power, like an emperor or dictator. 


  1. the connection with you and Matt Kennedy have is a good thing to have.

  2. I really liked how you tied his picture into the history of Coney Island.
