Find the war over Coney Island's future to be practically impenetrable? Then take a moment this morning to read Charles Bagli's story on the Coney situation in today's Times. It's the best summary to date of the competing plans put forth by Mayor Bloomberg, landlord Thor Equities and civic group the Municipal Art Society?and the inability for those sides to come together and hug it out. Key quotage: "We might be looking at vacant lots for a long time to come," said Charles Denson, executive director of the Coney Island History Project. "Everybody's broke. These massive plans, these visions, don’t usually work. But I hope for the best." [NYT]
