So very sad, the iconic Astroland Rocket has been taken down and will soon be carted away. The whole Coney Island redevelopment thing is very sad. What was once a fun, retro get-away enjoyed by many is soon going to be a desolate hole in the ground, mark my words.

From the mythical Brooklyn Bridge Park that was to have been completed years ago to the Atlantic Yards and the new home of the Nets to Coney Island. Grandiose plans that fall flat and eyesores that remain for years.
