Wonderland’s Remnant

Wonderland's Remnant

102 years ago, the Wonderland Amusement Park, located between Lake Street and 32nd Street, 31st and 33rd Avenue, closed, after a 7 year run. Its only remaining site in Longfellow is the 31st Street Apartments, their white painted brick almost invisible in the snow, which housed the Infantorium, filled with incubators containing tiny premature babies, with medical and nursing staff living on the second floor. http://www.friendsofthecemetery.org/history/alley_articles/wonderland_babies_july2004.shtml
