Gone for over 75 years, Starlight Park was one of the legendary amusement parks of the Bronx. Take a ramble down the new greenway link through the historic Starlight Park and discover its curious pre-history that includes hot times on the left bank of the river, a replica of Henry Hudson's Half Moon, a failed attempt to launch a "temperance amusement park", and no less than three unsuccessful attempts to hold a world's fair by the Bronx River.
