Tell New York City’s Parks Department not to destroy one of New York’s authentic jewels, the world-famous Coney Island Boardwalk! If the Parks Department has its way, the Boardwalk will be turned into a concrete sidewalk! The New York City Design Committee will meet on this issue on January 30th, so there's not much time. We need your help today!
Here's what you can do:
1. Sign this petition at change.org
Please visit the site again EVEN IF YOU THINK YOU HAVE ALREADY SIGNED, because many signatures were not recorded, due to a glitch in the system.
If you see a blue phrase "Inside U.S.," you MUST click on this before signing. You'll know your signature has gone through when you see a page that says, "Thanks for signing."
2. If you have the time and you don't happen to be working that day, please set aside Monday, January 30th and join a group of concerned citizens at the next New York City Design Commission meeting. Here's how it works: each person who shows up gets three minutes (and only three minutes) to speak to the Commission. The more people who show up, the more time we get. The meeting time hasn't been set yet, but the last one was in the late morning. It will definitely be during business hours. If you can show up, please reply to this post.
