SAMPLE LETTER:

Dear ________________________:

Coney Island’s rich history is in danger. Many of Coney Island’s remaining historic buildings are threatened with imminent demolition.

As these renderings (http://tiny.cc/2d0bv) show, the senseless destruction of these historic assets would be a squandered opportunity.  Moreover, in the current economic climate these demolitions would blight the area with vacant lots and second-rate development for the foreseeable future.

Coney Island is an American treasure. Please act now, before it’s too late, to ensure its successful revitalization by protecting the best of its past.

Sincerely,
[YOUR NAME]
