The New Coney Island - Brooklyn's Times Square by the Sea

To the bloggers that hate the chains

Do any of the bloggers that hate chains so much, ever remember that Coney Island has been a colossal economic failure for about half a century and is a winter ghost town? The problem is not keeping the chains out, but getting the chains interested enough to invest in a neighborhood that has been ignored and virtually left for dead by the development community for decades. 

Thank goodness that is turning now, as it is for all of South Brooklyn. Thor, iStar, Muss, Avalon Bay, Schron  and Rybak Development are active now. More to come.

Coney is changing to Times Square by the Sea. The Yuppies and Hipsters are heading south in Brooklyn. The big developers and the chains understand that.
