Plans For Coney Shed Delayed


BROOKLYN, NY (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — A proposed major revamp to a Coney Island amphitheater may have been put on hold after some residents have expressed concern about excessive noice from big summer events.

The $64 million shed advocated by Borough President Marty Markowitz is currently under consideration to be located in Asser Levy Park in Coney Island and would become a major destination for nationally touring artists.

The project has drawn intense opposition from local groups for a number of reasons, including concerns about noise and the disruption of the current park. The current plans entail moving a playground to the other end of the park, a move that critics contend would expose children to greater noise and pollution, the Brooklyn Paper noted.

"We're hopeful that this results in a drastically different plan for the park." Geoffrey Croft, president of NYC Park Advocates, told the Brooklyn Paper.

The hold on the project may be a temporary one and the Borough Hall noted that the delay was merely for the revised design plans for the venue. If the delay is merely bureaucratic remains to be seen. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
