More on the Coney Redevelopment Plan

The Gowanus Lounge awoke this morning to find "a fascinating article on the Coney Island redevelopment proposed by developer Joe Sitt and Thor Equities from the Brooklyn Daily Eagle that has been posted on the Coney Island Message Board. The Gowanus Loung lists about eight interesting points, including the fact that Thor Equities continues to say that an amusement park alone will lose money; and the purchase of Astroland came as a surprise to city officials, who weren't counting on Mr. Sitt buying an operating amusement.

GL also links to the Kinetic Carnival blog, which has some interesting thoughts on the article. KC links to the Save Coney Island myspace page, which Sarah Ryley of the Brooklyn Eagle reveals to be run by Lola Staar's Dianna Carlin.
