Weather saving Coney Island's spirit and character is going to be by not changing the current amusement zoning (and enticing other entrepreneurs that dare to dream like Lola Staar) or the conversion to parkland (and working with many amusement operators instead of one), they need to hear from us in LOUDER VOICES AND NUMBERS.
The Save Coney Island Coalition exclaims (in a comment to the GL blog):
Why are Mayor Bloomberg, City Councilman Domenic Recchia and Lynn Kelly, President of the Coney Island Development Corporation, allowing Joe Sitt to get away with murdering Coney Island?
