ASTROLAND at Coney Island is closed!

Whoa is me. The end of an era, and reminder of simpler days.

Sad, very sad. I loved that place, and did not even grew up there, just loved to visit when ever I was in NY.

Here in Des Moines we had riverview park which was a home town park for all ages.
they had 3 cent day for kids in the summer now it is gone. It was family friendly did not cost a ton of money to git in rides were cheap kids had wholesome fun. Now there is adventure land and it cost and arm and part of a leg to git and mucho bucks to ride. This not progress, now we have gangs, and drugs,. What ever happened to the good old days?????
