That's true. So many people want to leave Coney Island "as is", but that's just not going to work anymore. There's no reason, given it's history, the City should have to settle for things the way they are now. These new developments will go a long way towards bringing Coney Island back to its glory days. And having the attractions open year round instead of just half the year will be great. Imagine going to an active Coney around Christmas time and New Years eve....
