Statement by Lynn Kelly, President of the Coney Island Development Corporation on the Closing of Astroland


“Today’s announcement that Astroland will close after 46 years should be a serious wake-up call to those who have stood back and watched as the fate of Coney Island has been left in limbo without any safeguards for its future. This further underscores the need for the City’s comprehensive rezoning plan as the only hope for preserving the amusement area and bringing the necessary jobs, infrastructure and affordable housing to the neighborhood.”
