The End Of The Ride; Astroland Amusement Park Closing Permanently

The owner of Coney Island’s historic Astroland amusement park is calling it quits, MyFoxNY reports.

Carol Albert, whose family has owned the Brooklyn amusement park for almost a half century, says she has told employees it will permanently close on Sunday, Sept. 7.

In a statement, Albert says she is giving up on negotiating a two-year lease with Thor Equities, the developer that owns the seaside property.
