Coney Island Amusement Park Revitalization Plans
Last week New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg unveiled plans for the new Coney Island:

“Coney Island’s fabled beach front area would become home to America’s largest urban amusement park, about 4,500 new apartments and a bunch of major retail establishments under a grand plan unveiled today by Mayor Bloomberg.

The goal of the rezoning plan is to turn the rundown summer amusement area into a year-round attraction – but without giving up the freakishness for which Coney is so well known.”

The plans are far from a done deal, but the Mayor hopes to break ground in 2009. The project may take at least ten years to complete. Read the full story and see more photos.
