Fact #329:
The world's first escalator was built in Coney Island, NY, in 1896.

We found out that the first escalator is the name of a ride in the Coney island amusement park. We found this out from many different sights so we are pretty sure its true. You can find a picture of the "escalator" on the KINETIC Coney Island Amusement Park website.
