Will Mr. Sitt Cart This Away in a Dumpster?

Go Karts

Whether you think this is worth preserving, we suppose, depends on your taste in boardwalk kitsch and artwork. This is the ticket booth for one of the Go-Kart Tracks that Thor Equities is demolishing. We happen to think it's a little taste of Coney Island worth saving--at least, that the Go-Kart artwork is. Which brings us back to a question we raised several weeks ago: Is anyone going to save the unique signage and artwork that defines what Coney Island is today, as Thor demolishes things? Or are developer Joe Sitt's demolition crews simply going to toss everything into dumpsters and haul it away to landfills?
