The Rise and Suspiciously Rapid Fall of Freedomland

Recommended Posts

 

Come on over! No, the other direction!

Couple good pictures, one of Chicago Fire experience . News to me that there is a plaque  

"All that remains of the park is a commemorative plaque marking the where the entrance gate once stood, placed there by Virgintino and other fans in 2013. Yet its legacy lives on in the fad for history-based attractions that fail to reach their potential."

Sorry, but I don't buy into the theory that Freedomland was built to fail just so they could build housing on the area. They could have spent far less if that was their plan.

We went a school trip to Freedomland. One of the guys fell into the Chicago fire and had to climb out on his own.It would have been nice to have a local park but with the New York winters I doubt it could have survived  long.
