Please show support for NYC Planning Director Amanda M. Burden in saving Coney Island!!

Coney Island has been a substantial part of New York City culture and history since the 1860’s. Now that legacy is being threatened by the real estate company Thor Equities, LLC. The bullying, double-speaking and intimidating of Thor Equities is not unlike the stories of Coney Island from the turn of the last century. This time the amusement park itself is being threatened.

Although this NYC Planning Director Amanda Burden has not granted the Amusement District rezoning for the luxury condos Thor Equities has in mind, the company has already started the process of evicting the hardworking companies, that made Coney Island what it is, off the boardwalk, as well as starting demolition in the district.

In accordance with their deception and their crooked actions, they are also trying to use the amusement park as a bargaining tool against the city. If they are not granted the rezoning for the residential status, they are threatening to close the amusement park.

These behaviors are appalling, and should not be tolerated. Thor Equities should be used as an example against corporation dictatorship in the planning of the future of New York City. The Planning Director of NYC has taken a strong stand against the rezoning of this area, and we, the undersigned, are supporting her decision to stand by the legacy of Coney Island. SAVE CONEY!!
