Shame On You If You Don't Fix Your Coney Plan

THIS IS YOUR LAST CHANCE TO LISTEN TO YOUR PEOPLE. THEY DON'T WANT CONEY ISLAND TO DISAPPEAR UNDER ANOTHER GREEDY ATTEMPT TO DO WHAT'S GOOD FOR BIG BIZ. DO NOT ALLOW THE MAYOR'S CURRENT PLAN TO GO THROUGH WITHOUT EXPANDING THE OPEN-AIR AMUSEMENT AREA AND MOVING THE HIGH RISES OUT OF THEIR!

With the state of this economy and the plan to kill the character and uniqueness of Coney Island will forever be a thorn in the memory of this administration to join the negativity that still lingers with the ghost of Robert Moses.

STOP THIS PLAN AND DEMAND THE MAYOR AND HIS PLANNERS ALONG WITH HIS AGENCY FOR CONEY ISLAND TO GO BACK AND REDESIGN THIS PLAN BY LISTENING TO THE PEOPLE.

Coney Island is a city-wide issue for all the people of New York City, as well as by the people and for the people!

Like Tricia Vita of her wonderful blog, Amusing the Zillion, was able to ponder at while waiting inside City Hall to speak about saving the unique character of Coney Island, the city hasn't been following the old motto in Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address; “A Government Of the People, By the People, For the People!" Even a council member stated that he wishes the city was doing more of which has not been.

The City Council hearing on the Coney Island rezoning plan was my first time inside City Hall. During the eight hour long proceeding— my two-minute slot didn’t come up until seven hours had gone by— I had plenty of time to contemplate a ceiling medallion that says: “A Government Of the People, By the People, For the People—Lincoln.” Apparently I wasn’t the only visitor impressed by this tribute to Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address. Someone mentioned it in his testimony. Councilman Tony Avella, Chair of the Subcommittee on Zoning and Franchises replied, “I hate to tell you how many times we don’t do that, but hopefully we can do it in this situation.” We hope so too.

And we not only hope so too but along with the rest of those who have a big place in their hearts for the real Coney Island, we demand the city listen to all of us!

Didn't count on the real NY, the Coney residents and the unions, showing up did you Omar?

Maybe your 3 protestors can fight the 250,000 New Yorkers in the Coney For All alliance.

Good Luck!
