East Bronx History Forum – 143rd Meeting
Wednesday, November 20, 2019 – 7:30PM
“Mommy and Daddy take my Hand, take me out to Freedomland…50 cents is all you will pay at Freedomland today.…” That tune was used in 1960 when Freedomland charged 50 cents for children admission and then price changed each year until closing in 1964. Freedomland was opened for 5 seasons, but left a fond memory for over 50 years. The Forum is pleased to have a special presenter, Michael R. Virgintino, who has long studied and participated in nostalgic Freedomland events, and collected many new stories included in his book: “Freedomland U.S.A., The Definitive History”. Mr. Virgintino documents the entire story of Freedomland, from conception to the bankruptcy of one of the most innovative and beloved theme parks in America, along with the 150 entertainers who made appearances there. Mike Virgintino’s book will be available for purchase and signing. All meetings are free and open to the public. The Library is next to the Apple Bank and parking is free after 7 pm.
