Truly a very sad day indeed. Hopefully they keep the other attractions and such open.

Coney Island is not closing, Astroland is closing. My grandparents took me there a few times when I was very young, listen fact of the matter is that families in NYC would much rather drive an hour South to Six Flags.

I always hear tourist who are planning to visit NYC mention Coney Island, I politely try to talk them out of it.
