Astroland's Future

While reading this article from the New York Times about the future of Coney Island's Astroland, I remembered that the park had sent me some info on the Cyclone years ago. I dug it out and here is a fact sheet the park sent me ages ago.

You can tell it was ages ago because it was done on a typewriter. Ack! A typewriter, what is that?

Anyway, the future of Astroland and the area surrounding it either looks really bright or just as dim as it's been for years now.

If the developers' plans work out, the area will be a filled with new and exciting rides and attractions, as well as retail, food, and housing, but if not, who knows what will happen. The park is already slated to close after this season.

That said, if you're in the area take a trip!
