Save Astroland Protest

700_IMGP3400

Astroland's last day of the season (and possibly forever) began with a protest calling on developer Joe Sitt to extend the amusement park's life for another year. Blogger Adrian Kinloch captured these images of the event. You can find a photo gallery of his work here and coverage on his blog, Brit in Brooklyn, here. That's Astroland's former owner, Carol Hill Albert, below, facing the microphones.
