A space of musings, past and current as well as the future of amusements in the legendary Coney Island and Beyond!
As pointed out by a poster on the Coney Island message board, the $64 million Coney Island Performing Arts Center amphitheater pushed by Brooklyn Borough President, Marty Markowitz and very unpopular with the community looks more like a floating potato chip or a fly's left wing. Opponents feel that it's a waste of money and waste of park use. “The Coney Island Center will be a much-needed community resource, and will bring to Coney Island the kind of state-of-the-art performance facility Brooklyn deserves,” said Markowitz to the Brooklyn Daily Eagle.
If opposing forces which are now forming fails to make an impact, groundbreaking could start as early as this August.
The outdoor stage has in the past few years already drawn in many top names.
The Brooklyn Daily Eagle writes:
Within the past few weeks, opposing views have surfaced from those who question the site, size and cost of the project, setting the stage for a controversial public discussion that may or may not impact on the project’s future.
