Astroland To Grace Coney One More Year

This will not be the last summer for Astroland at Coney Island!

The New York Post reports that Thor Equities and Astroland owner Carol Hill Albert have worked out a deal to keep the amusement park in business through 2008. The agreement was brokered by Councilman Domenic Recchia Jr. Way to go, Dom!

This could be the latest sally by Thor's Joe Sitt to improve his press. I don't know, and I don't care. It's just good news, that's all.

And more good news: the City continues to work to find a new site for Astroland near Keyspan Park, where the Cyclones play. Who knows? Maybe Astroland's not going anywhere.
