Thor To Set Up Short Term Carnival Rides At Coney

Reports that developer Joe Sitt and Thor Equities would be setting up carnival rides in Coney Island, located on the empty lots that Thor had cleared last year have surfaced.

According to
Brownstoner, Thor Equities has announced that they will indeed be setting up a mini carnival on the lot for the duration of a week: from May 22nd to June 1st. Reithoffer Shows is the company that will be operating the carnival.

According to a poster on the Coney Island message boards,
The Gowanus Lounge writes:

OSHA cited the company for alleged safety and health violations at two Pennsylvania carnival sites, with proposed fines totaling $62,000, including one incident in which an employee fell from the top of a ride.
