Nostalgia: Palisades Amusement Park

This fabled local amusement park has long since closed, and was a already a nostalgia item when I was a little kid. Nevertheless, memorabilia and fans of the old park are still around, and you can see posters at local businesses. The area where the largest salt-water wave pool was located is now the site of the Horizon House apartment complexes.

Now that Callahan's hot dog hut is also gone (its now a bank--as if Fort Lee didn't have enough), the only remainder of the old amusement era is Hiram's hot dog stand.
