Freedomland USA, New York City’s short-lived and largely forgotten answer to Disneyland that closed 66 years ago this summer. Freedomland ran into problems almost immediately after its 1960 opening, with 10 people injured when a covered-wagon ride overturned. Walt Disney, who was already working on Walt Disney World (which would open in Florida in 1971) threatened a lawsuit because it was so similar to Disneyland. Shaped like the United States, Freedomland was divided into geographical sections, including “Little Old New York,’’ Chicago at the time of the 1871 fire — recreated on an hourly schedule; San Francisco at the time of the 1906 earthquake; New Orleans; and “Satellite City — The Future.’’
