If you are a resident of New York City, write, email, or phone Mayor Bloomberg, City Council President Christine Quinn, and your City Council Member.

If you are a visitor to Coney Island from outside the city, another state or country, when you get home, send a postcard to Mayor Bloomberg, telling him what you enjoyed about your visit, and why you won’t come back to visit a Coney Island where amusements and authenticity have been zoned out of existence and replaced by generic retail stores, formula restaurants and so-called “entertainment retail.”
