In another step toward the new Coney Island envisioned under the 2009 rezoning, New York City’s Department of Parks & Recreation released a request for proposals, or RFP, for the creation and operation of new rides, games and other attractions for the empty lots between the Cyclone roller coaster and the MCU minor league baseball park.
The RFP includes 150,000 square feet of space on five vacant parcels along the boardwalk between West 10th and West 16th Streets (depicted in grey, green, orange, purple and blue on the map). The city plans to lease the sites for 10 years and is hoping the new amusements will be opened by summer 2018. Proposals are due on March 17th. Click the headline for more information.
