The Long and Broken Boardwalk
With Coney Island in the news this week because of theatrics at the public presentation of the city's proposed zoning changes and plans, we thought we'd turn our attention again to the subject of the disgraceful condition of the boardwalk itself. We've focused on it from time to time over the last two years, and it is more deteriorated than ever. The image above is actually from Brighton Beach, where the boardwalk is in relatively pristine shape compared to the ratty condition of more heavily used parts in Coney Island. Yet, clearly these people-eating craters can appear anywhere.
