"Going down the tube."

Coney Island is not what it once was. Of course, people appreciate it a little too much for a dirty, creepy seediness that it used to have, but it did have its charms. Coney Island is now being gentrified at an astonishing pace, with new condominiums rising all over the place and the amusement parks being buried underneath them. I was disappointed that the go-kart tracks and mini golf courses have now been closed. It's hard enough to find those in a city of so many people already. Hopefully there will be better days ahead, but unless you want to see a neighborhood in flux and trying to figure out what it is, I say steer clear until the decision is finally made.

"Better days ahead."

This area is named after the Coney Island Amusement Park now known as Astroland and home of the famous Cyclone roller coaster.
The entire area has seen better days but is do for a turn around as the amusement park was sold in 2006 and plans are in the works for a $1.5 billion year round resort.
The Cyclone is expected to continue it's operation with the other rides being moved to different parts of the neighborhood.
