Councilmembers want city to landmark Coney Island Boardwalk
One day in the future, you might be stepping on a city landmark when you take a stroll on the Coney Island Boardwalk.
Brooklyn Councilmembers Mark Treyger and Chaim Deutsch have launched a petition drive calling on the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission to designate the boardwalk, which is officially named the Riegelmann Boardwalk, as a scenic landmark.
The two lawmakers are urging residents to sign the petition, which is available at change.org and at their district offices.
“There is no question that the historic Riegelmann Boardwalk is one of the most iconic and beloved structures in our entire city and clearly merits this designation. I have already heard from dozens of New Yorkers who are shocked this isn’t already the case and wanted to share their personal stories of what the boardwalk means to them and their families,” Treyger said.
