Gathering To Save The Amusements

The Save Coney Island group is holing a meeting for volunteers to save Coney's amusement future which is shrinking under current plans for it's redevelopment.

Save Coney Island Volunteer Meeting:
This is the final hour. The fat lady is clearing her throat. The fate of Coney Island will be decided this summer.

A greedy developer and a flawed city rezoning plan threaten the future of the “People’s Playground.” At the end of the summer, the City Council will vote on a plan that would reduce the size of the amusement area to a small strip of land by the Boardwalk and put four high-rises right in front of it. We have a little over two months to convince the City Council to oppose the City’s plan or to convince the City to change it. Help us save this national treasure!

Save Coney Island will be holding an organizational meeting to plan our final strategy and decide the events for the summer. We need to turn this into the city-wide issue it deserves to be!

This is our last chance!

Please attend this meeting:
WHEN: Tuesday May 19th at 7PM
LOCATION: Downtown Brooklyn at FUREE Headquarters
ADDRESS: 81 Willoughby Street, Ste. 701
(7th Floor)

We’ll fill you in on the background to the fight to save Coney Island, and help you get involved.
