Amphitheater - Statement from Marty's spokesperson

Bay News Excerpt -

When contacted, Laura Sinagra, a spokesperson for the Borough President’s office, said that Markowitz “understands that even with a wonderful park rehabilitation like this one, there are those who will see its value and those who may feel differently.”

She added that Markowitz “would like to reiterate that the goal of this project is to renovate the park and ensure it is not only a welcoming eastern gateway to a revitalized Coney Island, but a place where families and residents, including those of Brightwater, Warbasse, Trump Village and Luna Park, can enjoy recreation as well as the free music and cultural programming that residents have taken pleasure in over the years -- a hallmark of Asser Levy Seaside Park since at least the turn of the twentieth century.”

For months, opponents have been chastising board members for not speaking out against the amphitheater.
