Coney Island's biggest landowner is intent on saving one of its icons -- the Astrotower.
Developer Joe Sitt yesterday said he "fell in love" with the popular, 275-foot-high attraction and its panoramic views of the seaside park, the boardwalk and the beach after obtaining it last year from the operators of the shuttered Astroland Park.
He said he wants to "highlight it" at Dreamland, a temporary amusement park he opened last month on the site.
"I love it, and I want to keep it," Sitt said. "I think the Astrotower is just as much an icon for Coney Island as the Parachute Jump."
