Zigun’s specific concerns and recommendations include (Via Save Coney Island):
- The City’s plan would create a wall of four high rises limiting public access to the water and amusements. To fix this, Zigun recommends moving the 27-story towers north of Surf Avenue, a change endorsed by the borough President and Community Board.
- The City’s plan calls for a reduction from 60 acres to 12 acres devoted to amusements, not enough for the rides that will draw in the tourists. To address this, Zigun proposes expanding the acreage for outdoor rides and amusements.
- Finally, Zigun notes that the City’s plan creates financial incentives to tear down Coney Island’s few remaining historical landmarks, including Nathan’s Famous. Zigun’s fix: build new, but let us keep a few bits of history by protecting Coney Island’s iconic landmarks.
