Major Coney Island landowner Thor Equities gave Astroland the hammer in favor of its own temporary Dreamland plans, but before the freaks arrive for the summer the company has already figured out a way to monetize the grounds: bounce houses and parking. The photos from this past weekend come from the Coney Island message boards, where it's pointed out that these same bounce houses appeared on a different emptied Thor lot last summer. Can't they at least spray paint a mural of Tupac and Biggie on the side to give it that authentic Astroland feel?
