In his 2008 State of the City Address, Bloomberg reiterated his commitment to revitalizing Coney Island:
with our partners in City and State government, we'll work to bring the magic back to America's first playground: Coney Island. This is New York City. We can't lose it!
The mention came in the context of the discussion of the many areas which the city is rezoning in anticipation of redevelopment, including the South Bronx, 125th Street in Manhattan, St. George on Staten Island, and Willets Point in Queens.
