New, 5 comments

So, with the city forging ahead with its Coney Island redevelopment plan, what about the old amusement park? Astroland owner Carol Hill Abert "has no immediate plans to sell her collection of two dozen rides or the iconic Astroland rocket ship" (they're being stored in an undisclosed facility), but she has reportedly been in discussions with a park operator to bring Astroland to Australia's Gold Coast. An entrepreneur told an Aussie paper that Astroland would "stand out" at the beachside tourist destination. [NYDN]
