Dreamland

Coney Island's world-famous Astroland shut it's doors last weekend after 46 years of operation. It's future is uncertain, as the property was bought by Thor Equities who have supposedly refused to negotiate with the former owner. Nevertheless, the public enjoyed the rides one last time on Sunday.

'Dreamland', which was taken on this final day can be found under PHOTO|COLLECTIONS.
The title comes from Kevin Baker's novel 'Dreamland', which takes place in turn-of-the-century Coney Island.
