Marty and Domenic testify for the Amphitheater

This was at the City Planning Commission hearing

Excerpt - From CityLandNYC.org-
Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz testified in support of the project. He described the Childs building as a vacant and derelict eyesore. He stated that the reuse and revitalization of the Childs building can “breathe new life into this underutilized section of Reigelmann Park,” and also “continue to focus the City’s attention on the dire needs of Coney Island,” including its “public housing, as well as other amenities and infrastructure that are so vital to the future of Coney Island.”
Council Member Domenic M. Recchia, Jr. testified in support of the Seaside amphitheater, stating that the new location of the Summer Concert Series was one of the biggest issues in the revitalization plan of Coney Island. In response to opposing testimony, he stated, “If I were to listen to all the people who were against the revitalization of Coney Island, we would never revitalize Coney Island.” He continued, “Coney Island would not be what it is today.”
Following Council Member Recchia’s testimony, Commissioner Angela Battaglia praised the Council Member. She stated, “A lot of praise went to the Borough President for the revitalization of Coney Island, but in my heart and soul, I believe much if not all of that praise really belongs to you. I’ve seen what you’ve done, I’ve seen you fight for it.”
