Coney Island may be getting revitalized, but some standbys are getting hurt. lornagrl posted a photograph of Shoot the Freak damage yesterday. She writes, "They have begun to bulldoze the racetrack park and in the process damaged the Shoot the Freak attraction. It's expected to run another year on the board walk." We bet the STF will be able to get some damages to repair the site, but is it too cynical to think this was deliberate?
Last October, the Post reported that Shoot the Freak will supposedly get the chance to move into Thor Equities' new complex for fun and games. It's unclear, though, whether Thor really will have space for amusements - the developer may just be focusing on condos. There's a debate about how many condos the city will allow.
