24 vintage photos on CD
This set of photos is from two now closed East
Coast amusement parks. The first set of 9 is from Palisades Park, which was
located in New Jersey on the bluffs above the Hudson River. It was a major
entertainment site for the area, but unfortunately the land was more valuable
for housing and the gates closed forever in 1967.
The remaining 15 photos are from Rockaway's Playland, a now vanished amusement park in the Queens section of New York City. Located right on the ocean, the park featured a number of rides and a giant swimming pool. One of the more memorable attractions was the Atom Smasher roller coaster, which was seen in "This is Cinerama". Sadly, the park fell victim to a declining neighborhood and was torn down in 1985.
