2008_12_astrorock.jpgThe Save Coney Island community is worried that the Astroland Rocket will be sold as scrap if the rocket remains homeless (Astroland is being dismantled). An email from the Save Coney Island Group, via Curbed: "Help us Save The Astroland Rocket!! We have to find a new location for the Astroland Rocket soon or it will be sold for scrap metal!! Astroland will pay to relocate the rocket if we find a space for it!! It has to be somewhere secure, where people can't vandalize it. Any ideas??" The city was reportedly in negotiations with developer Thor Equities about taking over the property, but it's unclear where those talks are. Photo: lornagrl on Flickr
