In looking back at some of Quincy's recent history, I think I would have loved to have been able to ride the "Skyride" over and back from Quinsippi Island. I imagine the view of the Mississippi River from there was outstanding. I came to Quincy in 1978 and the ride was no longer in operation. Why and when did it end?  When did it begin?  Who owned the ride? How much did it cost to ride over and back?

As you can see I have plenty of questions without any answers so perhaps you can be of assistance in answering them. When I last drove over to the island, I could still see the landing port for the ride. Where did it originate from? Yet another unanswered question.

Were you a sky-rider? If so, fill me in on the details!
