Going Once, Going Twice... Idora on the Auction Block

On October 20, 1984, after the turnstile had turned for the last time, Idora was put on the auction block. These photos were taken when the park was open to the public to view before they bid - a wake for a dead park.

The World Famous Idora Park Carousel. This building was home to the P.T.C Carousel #61 installed at the park in 1922. The carousel building was one of the oldest structures at the park when it was demolished in September 1998. The Carousel itself was sold to a couple in New York City.

Who wants to buy Kiddie Land? It was up for auction when this photo was taken...

The Back Wabbit... aka The Jack Rabbit, depending on the direction of travel.
