The Rebirth Of Coney: History Is Returning To Coney's Future

While some parts of Coney are being murdered, there still is a rebirth in other areas.  Out of the ashes left by the demise of Astroland, a bright new amusement park emerges.  And as if brought back from the past in high definition and in full color (for those who only know the old Coney through the recorded image), Luna Park is here again.  Paying homage to the original Luna Park, these entrance signs bring back the half moon designs that are so familiar to us from a part of Coney Islands' glorious and historic past.  It's exciting to see when there is respect for history in our city and a dedication to preserve it.
