Comment Film Info & Credits
While most amusement parks are relegated to the suburbs, Astroland in Coney Island has been an integral part of the urban landscape of Brooklyn for decades. This film offers a moment of reflection and remembrance on the eve of Astroland's final summer (the park will close in September 2008 and plans are in place to redevelop it into a 1.5 billion dollar resort). www.humanities.mcmaster.ca/~plattl
