Public Imagines Coney at First of Two Workshops

A diverse group of members of the public came together at the Coney Island Gospel Assembly on Monday evening to Imagine Coney and weigh in with their ideas for Coney Island’s future: for events and activities, for new amusement rides, for the design of new structures and even for interim activities that could happen in the summer of 2009.

Also sponsored by MAS, the second Imagine Coney workshop is being held this evening at 6:30 p.m., at Brooklyn Public Library Central Branch, 10 Grand Army Plaza, Brooklyn. It is free and open to the public, but reservations are encouraged. RSVP online or call 212-935-2075.

MAS has invited a team of world-class architects, engineers, amusement designers and creative producers to participate in a “charrette” – an intense design workshop – on November 13 & 14 to develop new ideas for activities, designs, events and interim uses for Coney Island. The team assembled on October 27 in Brooklyn (click here to see photographs) for briefings from key stakeholders. The team will present their initial ideas to the public on November 17.
