AstrolandMania Monday: We Begin

February 2nd, 2009 · No Comments

Astroland is now truly dead. Carol Hill Albert and her employees vacated the premises on Saturday night at the expiration of their lease. And so ends and enterprise that began in 1962 with that Space Age Optimism. It now belongs to the Age of 2009 Diminished Expectations and Recession. It is in the hands of developer Joe Sitt and Thor Equities, unless a deal is worked out with the city to buy his property. Stay tuned. We were on the property Saturday thanks to a kind soul. The results of the visit will be popping up here and there today. Oh, Happy Post-Super Bowl Monday.
