I bought my first non-Adams magic trick when I was eight years old. It was nickels-to-dimes.

I got it at the magic shop at . . . FREEDOMLAND in the Bronx.

Anyone remember it?

Not The Bronx...

Da Bronx!!!!

Yes, I remember Freedomland.
My parents took me there a couple of times and I remember it being pretty cool.
But that much land was worth too much money so there it went.
I don't think it was around too long, was it??

Take Care,

The land it was on is now a huge apartment building development called Co-Op City which has been there for many years now.

I don't think it lasted more than five or six years.

Someone could probably write a very interesting book about that place which would involve New York City politics, cultural history, economics, and sociology.

Jack,

You know that's not a bad idea considering there are enough of us still around to form a half-way decent market.
Besides, it might be a lot of fun.
