“I think it’s important because the kids have a value. They’re gonna grow up and know that they can go to Luna Park and say ‘I helped name that ride for the next 20 years,'” said Samuel Moore, executive director of the Coney Island YMCA. “They can bring their children and say they were a part of that. That’s life changing.”
