More Fun with Coney's Break-Your-Face Boardwalk

Boardwalk Holes

We hate to keep harping about the hideous condition of Coney Island's trip-and-fall boardwalk, but the fact that we were afraid we were going to break through a plank the other night, uh, renewed our interest in it. That and the fact that we shot a nice pic of a hole surrounded by trash cans. The awful thing about the reprehensible level of disrepair into which the Parks Department has let it fall is that part of the delay in fixing it may be due to both other budget priorities and redevelopment plans for Coney Island. In other words, the city may be reluctant to invest money into repairs knowing that rebuilding could result in parts of the boardwalk being torn up. In the meantime, walk very, very carefully. The temporary planks placed over the holes are almost as big a hazard than the problem they are intended to cover up.
