Thinkers offer ideas for Coney Island

Coney Island

The Center for an Urban Future issued a report yesterday with opinions from architects, urban planners, historians and writers on the future of Coney Island. Jonathan Lethem, author of "Motherless Brooklyn" and "The Fortress of Solitude" criticized the Atlantic Yards project, calling developer Bruce Ratner's leadership of the project a "mistake." Lisa Chamberlain, executive director of the Forum for Urban Design, suggested an express train from Times Square to Coney Island to draw some of Times Square's tourists to Coney Island.
