Among people who obsess over such things, the disappearance of the Astroland sign from the top of Coney Island's Cyclone roller coaster hurts almost as much as the disappearance of Astroland itself. Conspiracy theories have been burning up the Coney Island message board for over a month, but one tipster just alerted the crowd that the sign is being restored and new lights are being added. Phew! Meanwhile, in other Coney chaos news, the Village Voice just interviewed unofficial mayor and freakshow proprietor Dick Zigun about everything that's right and wrong about the city's redevelopment plan. Spoiler: In Zigun's opinion, the plan is heavy on the wrong.
