This is Astroland as it looked yesterday. What a heartbreaking sight and what an unneccessary thing. We do not have positive feelings about any of the people who collectively allowed this to happen.

    Aren’t they sposed to build a new amusement park? Or shall we expect some shiny new condos at Coney Island?

    Oh boy! Here comes Olive Garden!

    Given this recession (depression?) we’re in it will be a sad sight in Coney Island this coming summer. Tons of people wanting to take a break and entertain their kids without breaking the bank. And what do they get? Empty lots.

    Sad and a waste.
