Coney Update-o-Rama

New, 2 comments

In the lead-up to the mayoral primary, Amusing the Zillion is analyzing the new Coney Island?Coney as it has evolved since the July 2009 rezoning. First up, Jones Walk, a former "midway of midways" that now "looks like a victim of a split personality disorder." The east side, owned by city, has food and games; the west side belongs to Thor Equities and has?nothing on it. One local business owner attributes this to raised rents?he left his space in 2009 when the rent went from $8,000 to $24,000. [AtZ; previously]
