Astroland & Coney Businesses May Live Another Year

There have been rumors all week that some sort of Coney Island news would be out by the end of the week. This morning we know: It looks like a number of Coney Island businesses are being given one-year leases so they can keep operating next year. As for the operatic saga of Astroland, it looks like the It Will Live-It Will Die pendulum has clearly swung back toward life. Astroland's owner says she is "hopeful" and Thor's spokesperson says that the negotiations to give the park a one-year reprieve are "ongoing." So, it turns out that Astroland's "last day" may not have been the real last one, after all, for now.
