    The FAMOUS ELDORADO IS BEING SOLD!

    Just want to let everyone know, The Eldorado is going to be sold to Thor Equities. I made this decision about 1 year ago, as with mom and dad no longer coming to Brooklyn, NY, it is just too much work for one person. THAT'S ALL.

    Sorry to hear this, but it sounds like you've made peace with the decision.
    Has the last open business day occurred yet?

    Good Morning, Scotty,

    Well, as the old songs refrain goes, "everything must change....". Sorry to hear it, though. I know that the El was a real part of your life for a very long time, and that you will very likely miss it, once it's not in your life anymore. However, you may well find that you don't miss it as much as you thought you might. Such a venue requires much of a person, and the work load must be extremely heavy!! So, take your time and find something fun that really trips your trigger, and move on to another fine adventure, as has been the El Dorado! Well done, my Friend, and best of luck on all of your future adventures!! I only wish I had been able to visit whilst you were still at the controls of the El, to see the place for myself!! Take care, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc
    The only thing that can never be taken away from you, is your honor. Cherish it, in yourself, and in others.

    Scotty,

    I'm saddened by the news. I'm assuming you're selling to the development agency and this means dismantling of the Scootercars and loss of that section of Coney Island to condos. Correct?

    Any plans for selling off memormabilia from the art-deco icon?

    Did my NYC daughter miss her chance to visit the ride??

    I'm sad for you but realize you must have made a rational decision. Good Luck.

    Good luck, Scott. So goes Coney Island (what's left of it).
    I think you got out at the right time.

    Yes I am young, 47, but mom and dad got old. And right before my eyes, too. They do not want to come up to NY anymore. I just cannot run this building alone.

    In my younger years, I went fishing often from party boats on Coney Island.

    ...apparently, that is all changed now.


    Good luck Scotty!

    ...make sure you seek competent tax advice on the transaction.

    Your daughter can still come to The Eldorado. We have a year, maybe 2, in the building.

    We will sell off whatever is clever.
