CONEY ISLAND—We're wrapping up early for the long weekend, but we haven't forgotten that Coney Island Astroland replacement Luna Park opens for the season tomorrow. Above, a test run for the Swing Ride. City bigwigs gathered for a ribbon-cutting ceremony today, at which Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz announced, "We don't have to invent our freakishness....We don't have to import characters to Brooklyn." Only the rides, which come from Italy. We'll be back Tuesday. [Flickr]
