Nice set of questions. I wonder how deep the footing and foundation would have been for the Eiffel Tower if it was built at Coney.

Probably a little deeper than at KI. More clay to bedrock. The water plant tower near the river bottoms at 24 feet below the surface of pool level of the river.

I know that. I was saying, in terms of alterations to the footing, leg connection, what was altered to fit it on the KI site.

This is not a mailbag KIBlog post, but a great read on Carl Eichelman who was one of the marathon pioneers (like @DonHelbig with The Racer) on The Beast. A great tribute as The Beast celebrates its 40th this season.
