It's been a while since we've visited New York's Freedomland (the east coast rival to Disneyland, located in the north Bronx area). I'll have three posts consisting of a small group of slides that I found recently. There's nothing extraordinary, but it's always nice to take a look around this park that only lasted four years before closing.
Walt Disney tried having a circus at Disneyland, and the idea was one of the early failures at the park. I wonder if the George Hamid, Jr. Circus at Freedomland fared any better? To the extreme left is a chintzy bandstand (for lack of a better word) for the Freedomland Circus Band.
I like signage, and you don't see much from Freedomland... check out this example for the American Express Overland Stage (and see some photos of it here and here)! Like Disneyland, Freedomland's Stage Coach keeled over at least once, injuring a number of guests.
