Last Chance To Walk Through Coney Island's History Before It's History

A free walk through Coney Island's dying history is available by the Save Coney Island. Here is your last chance before Coney's only historic 'district' is destroyed by Coney's evil empire: Thor Equities.  Another example of how society is not capable of appreciating and honoring anything precious or worthy,and relent to their dark nature of greed.  While Thor Equities barged in and help raise the stakes in Coney Island, they've managed to wreak havoc along the way.  And now they're latest manhandling will destroy the only remaining buildings that link us to Coney Island's past.

Here is the press release by Save Coney Island:
group. 
Walking Tour on Sundays
Don't miss the chance to join us in our walking tour of historic Coney Island!  The guided tour will cover all the historic buildings along Surf Avenue, as well as some of Coney's existing landmarks. We will have historic pictures so you can see what the buildings once were; and a few renderings illustrating how these buildings could be creatively restored and reused.

WHERE - In front of the Shore Theater, on the corner of Surf and Stillwell Aves
WHEN - Sunday, September 12th at 11:00 am (and every Sunday thereafter through the end of Sept.)
FREE! (but suggested donation of $10 appreciated)

All comers get a free Save Coney Island button and a copy of our brand new Save Coney Island map!  (a special thanks to everyone who donated and made the printing of this trial run possible!!)

Make Your Voice Heard!
Call AND write to Coney Island Councilmember Recchia, Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz, and Mayor Bloomberg with this message.  This sample letter includes a link to our renderings.  These calls and letters get logged and they can make a difference!

Forward this to a friend!  As always, thanks for your support!
