The cover page of today’s AM NY newspaper is a testament to the potential future of our beloved Coney Island. The area’s revitalization has been an on again-off again hot topic for years and the conversation appears to be back on the table.
The waning days of summer are always bittersweet on Coney Island. But in recent years, the angst isn’t just a simple case of the end-of-season blues. It’s a gnawing uncertainty about how much of Coney’s treasured lore will survive into the next summer.
– Rolando Pujol, AM NY
