Beginning Of The End

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.

New York has got to be the worst when it comes to destroying and then failing to rebuild. 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.

This Was Last Year

This Was Last Week

It is just a matter of time until Ruby's and Cha Cha's bite the dust. And can the Freak Bar be far behind?

Is anyone else having this problem?

Is this some kind of a government conspiracy?

Jets Coaches

Since 1989 the Jets coaches have gone from Joe Walton to Bruce Coslet to Pete Carroll to Rich Kotite to Bill Belichick (for a week) to Bill Parcells, to Bill Belichick (for a day) to Al Groh to Herm Edward to Eric Mangini to...

Can anyone say continuity?
