Astroland Rocket

The Astroland Rocket of Coney Island finally found a new home. ¬†Former Astroland co-owner, Carol Hill Albert donated the super-awesome Rocket to the NYC Economic Development Corp. on behalf of the Coney Island History Project. ¬†We still don’t know where it will actually live though.
