    GET THERE EARLY TO GET THROUGH SECURITY
    If you have a Save Coney Island shirt, wear it. If you have a little time, make a “Save Coney Island” sign and bring it.

    Thor Equities is stepping up its campaign to erase Coney Island’s history.

    The developer has announced plans to immediately begin demolishing its properties along Surf Avenue. In danger are several historically significant buildings dating back more than a century.

    “This summer is going to be about the demolition,” Thor Equities spokesman Loren Riegelhaupt told The Brooklyn Paper.

    Save Coney Island believes this summer should be about REVITALIZATION (with the opening of the new Luna Park) and PRESERVATION – NOT about “DEMOLITION.”

    This Wednesday, May 12, at 10:00 A.M. Save Coney Island will be joining with other preservation-minded groups from across New York City at a citywide preservation rally at City Hall.

    Please join us. This will be perfect opportunity to put Coney Island’s preservation battle for in the citywide spotlight. We need you to make your voice heard.
