Freedomland U.S.A.: The Definitive History with Michael Virgintino
Monday, February 3 at 7:00pm. Village Center. Freedomland U.S.A.in The Bronx, was built by the same man who built Disneyland for Walt Disney. Historian Michael Virgintino presents the story of Freedomland U.S.A. with photographs, a memorabilia display, insight into the attractions, character actors and celebrity entertainers associated with the park, and uncovers the real reason the park filed for bankruptcy. Michael exposes the plans to construct Co-op City and how city planners, politicians and the landowner used Freedomland as a “placeholder” for the development of the marshland. Michael is a journalist and public relations executive, as well as a historian. He began researching Freedomland U.S.A. ten years ago, ultimately writing his book, Freedomland U.S.A.: The Definitive History.
