Coming to a Neighborhood Near You
November 1st, 2007

The Bloomberg administration has lots more to do in its plans to reshape city neighborhoods, planning commissioner Amanda Burden told a conference sponsored by the Manhattan Institute today. And one area still in its sights is Coney Island. According to Burden, the mayor soon will announce a plan to preserve the amusement park, making it a year-round attraction, and coupling it with entertainment and housing in the right location. The dispute over whether and where to put housing in Coney Island is largely credited (or blamed, depending on your point of view) for scuttling the Coney Island plan proposed by Thor Equities, which owns much of the Astroland site. (For more on planning for Coney Island, see Making Coney Island Green.)

The conference kind of a lovefest for Bloomberg administration zoning policies and efforts to promote regional business districts opened with Bloomberg hailing his own accomplishments. His administration, he said, has rezoned nearly 6,000 city blocks more than under the last six mayors combined.

And hes not done. About 25 other districts are slated for the rezoning before Bloomberg leaves office, Burden said, vowing, We will touch every neighborhood in the city.
