The New Coney Island
Posted by bear in destinations 12 years ago
One of the very last pockets of New York City to have dodged the ruthless post-Giuliani scrub-down and clean-up is set to change forever this year. Brooklyn's Coney Island, 'the People's Playground', is to go the way of Times Square and other Disney-fied city districts, with a billion-dollar redevelopment incorporating hedge fund-friendly luxury apartments, a Las Vegas-style megahotel and an indoor water park. If you've never included Coney Island on one of your Big Apple jaunts - go now! The wrecking ball is already swinging.
