and the city and Thor split the land in Coney East, then we could see some rapid development movement with the hotels in Coney East and the condos in Coney North and West. Construction could possibly begin as early as 2010! I would also expect to see interim amusements next summer in the City parkland portion of Coney East.
I would expect Bloomberg would want to have things going on a smooth path for Coney Island and Atlantic Yards development before November elections.
Let's hope the newspapers are correct and Thor and the City can close this deal quickly!
