Travel Time: Freedomland – 1963

Freedomland U.S.A. (usually just called Freedomland) was a short-lived, themed amusement park in the Baychester area in the northeastern part of the Borough of The Bronx, New York City.

Its slogan was “The World’s Largest Entertainment Center” (later, “The World’s Largest Outdoor Family Entertainment Center”).

Freedomland opened on June 19, 1960.

It closed at the end of the 1964 season when it failed to make a profit.

The former site of Freedomland is currently the gargantuan Co-op City and the Bay Plaza Shopping Center.
