Coney Wants Workers...They Want You, The Locals

The operators of the new Coney Island along with city officials and the Coney Island Development Corporation (CIDC) will be holding job fairs throughout this week in Brooklyn for more than 200 full time and part time jobs for the coming revitalized Coney Island.

The announcement yesterday states:
“Central Amusement International is proud to work with the Coney Island Development Corporation and Department of Small Business Services on this tremendous recruitment effort,” said Valerio Ferrari, president of Central Amusement International. “With Luna Park, we’re not only bringing the fun back to Coney – we’re bringing jobs back, as well.  CAI is thrilled to be able to give local residents the opportunity to help write a bright new chapter in Coney Island’s spectacular history.”

“When we passed the redevelopment plan for Coney Island, we promised we would bring jobs to the people who live there,” said Councilman Domenic M. Recchia, Jr.  “I’m proud to say that we’re fulfilling that promise.  Central Amusement International recognizes the importance of providing jobs, and has been a wonderful partner in Coney Island.”

“Coney Island is a place where families of every economic means have always come to play and to dream. I was thrilled last year to be part of the historic rezoning that guarantees a brighter future for ‘America’s Playground,’ including ensuring that benefits of new development and resources are realized by the residents of that neighborhood,” said Borough President Marty Markowitz. “In short, when we build in Coney, we must build with Coney.  All of Brooklyn and New York City is thrilled to welcome Central Amusement International and the new Luna Park to a revitalized amusement district, and I’m thrilled that the Coney Island Development Corporation (CIDC) and Small Business Services are committing to holding job fairs for area residents for the upcoming summer season.”

The jobs range from temporary, part-time, long-term, and full-time including:
