Changing Coney Island

When you look at the approved zoning plan it is so impressive to see that we got year round zoning in all 3 parts of the plan - Coney East, Coney North, and Coney West. It really is quite amazing to see how much change is about to happen in the next several years. This was a total and complete win for year round development in Coney.

And looking just to the east, Brighton Beach downzoning fell through which opens up that area to grow tremendously along with Coney Island. I expect Brighton will be an oceanfront residential hot spot with many more new condos along with Sheepshead Bay.

We are going to see growth on the Brooklyn waterfront the likes of which we have never seen before. As the economy continues to recover, South Brooklyn will undergo the same renaissance that happened to North Brooklyn in the last decade.
