To get it off the city books the it was transferred to the Federal Government as a wild life refuge.  Not much in the way of endangered species, in that area, but if anything goes wrong the city, isn't responsible, so I guess they consider it a win.

Another old GESO, now with a working url.

Bridgeport's pleasure Beach abandoned by the residents after the city decided 
to not renew the leases on the land upon which they had built their homes.   
Most expected to come back after the city was induced to renew, so they 
carefully boarded up their houses, but they lost that battle.  20 years of 
vandalism and nature have taken it's toll.
