The Cole Bros. Circus was at Coney Island last week, through yesterday, the first circus there since 1938. It had trapeze artists, animals, a human cannonball, the whole thing. What brought the big top back to Surf Avenue after a nearly 70-year hiatus? Thor Equities, natch, which now owns most of the historic amusement area. Thanks, soulless, history-destroying, neighborhood-changing major developers!
