Brooklyn: Goodbye Coney Island
The Coney Island of my lifetime is no more. Astroland Park shut it's doors (It had doors?) this past Sunday after a run of 45 years. Interesting, I'm 45. You can read all about it here.
It seems that most of the amusement park lands have been sold to Thor Equities who are promising some major redevelopments, which are supposed to include a new park. From what I hear, we shouldn't hold our breath. Apparently the transisition is not going smoothly.
Here's some pictures from my last visit.
