Synthetic Boardwalk to Solve Coney's Problem?

Boardwalk Damage

The Coney Island boardwalk may be going synthetic. Today's Post reports that the city is going to test out replacing the wood in the most dangerous section of the badly deteriorated boardwalk with synthetic planks that look like wood. The Parks Department is going to solicit bids starting Friday for boardwalk replacement from West 12th to West 15th streets. The foundation will be replaced with concrete. No word on whether the planks will be made of recycled material as they are in some places or on the timetable.

not loving the idea of a synthetic boardwalk. I understand the appeal from a maintenance perspective. But it won't have that same echoing of footsteps that walking on a wooden boardwalk gives you.
