Coney Boardwalk Blues

Coney Island boardwalk merchants spent years hating Joe Sitt's Thor Equities, but now they're worried about their new landlord?Italian amusement giants Zamperla. Boardwalk businesses like Shoot the Freak and Ruby's bar have been told to submit plans by Aug. 31 outlining marketing initiatives, upgrades and other keys to running a successful business that make sense everywhere but the crazyville that is Coney Island, or risk getting the boot. Freaks hate doing homework, so the whole thing isn't sitting too well. [NYP]
