Disney World in your own backyard: Freedomland USA
Yes, that's right. Back in the early sixties when I was just a kid, there was an amusement park like no other. It was called Freedomland USA and it once stood on the site in Bronx, NY which today is known as Co-Op City. It was an American History themed park with cool rides through the Civil War and a recreation of the Chicago Fire every half hour. It definitely made and impact on me. It was only around for a few years before it was shut down for financial reasons. Take a trip through memory lane or discover something you might have missed.
