The Partially Dismantled Astrotower
Coney Island's Astrotower was deemed unsafe and partially dismantled last July. And we understood, we really did. It was rusty and swaying too much in the wind and had perhaps suffered foundational damage from Hurricane Sandy. Plus, it served no functional purpose and was not as aesthetically pleasing as, say, the still-standing parachute jump. But we still miss it.
