So, what's up with this burger boy who has stood perched atop the Gregory & Paul's foodstand along with the Astroland rocket for many years? Though this image has a mirrored effect (He only holds one big juicy burger instead of two), could he still be considered a Coney Island icon? Does he have a name? An origin? Who knows the history of this fast-food-toutin'-Astroboy? Shouldn't we make sure he has a place in the future Coney Island?

Left is the original (non-mirrored) burger boy. And don't forget his girlfriend who's perched on the other end of the food stand.
Both 'Astro' boy & girl should have a place in the future Coney.
