A Day Late and a Dollar Short

A couple of weeks ago, The Post reported that the city was going to finally replace the collapsing Coney Island boardwalk. Well, three blocks of it, anyway.

The New York Daily News has reported that the work won't start until after the busy summer season.

The Daily News quotes Dianna Carlin aka Lola Starr (who has been getting a lot press lately) as saying "By that time it will probably have collapsed," and chimes in with their own lead line, "Talk about too little, too late."

It's tempting to agree. At the same time, we're probably better off enduring few more months of busted boardwalk than dealing with a boardwalk that's closed off all summer.
