So long, Astroland

Coney Island's Astroland Park closed for good yesterday. Below are a few photos from a trip there earlier this summer.

Deno's Wonder Wheel Amusement Park will remain open next year.
Like the Cyclone, the Wonder Wheel is owned by the City of New York.

Nathan's now displays calories on it's menu. Most items had around 1,000.
