It really is amazing that both Coney Island and Atlantic Yards are progressing at the same time. Picture Times Square with amusements by the sea at Coney and another Madison Square Garden in Atlantic Yards.
Anybody who believes Brooklyn will not be competing with Manhattan for tourism and business over the next few years is nuts. It's all coming together and a large thank you has to go out to Marty, Domenic and Bloomberg. There was huge political support for this, and it would not have progressed if there wasn't that support.
THANK YOU FROM BROOKLYN! WE ARE ALMOST THERE!
