CONEY ISLAND - Coney Island business owners say the Astrotower's untimely demise negatively affected this year's Fourth of July weekend.

Business owners say they didn’t have as many customers as usual this year.

They blame the Astrotower, which closed several Coney Island attractions for two days as emergency crews worked to dismantle it.

Still, local store owners say they're looking forward to the rest of the summer and hoping more crowds come out.
