Public Imagines Coney at Second Workshop; Charrette Underway at New York Aquarium

A diverse group of New Yorkers gathered last night at the main branch of the Brooklyn Public Library to generate new ideas for Coney Island. From launching an invention convention to building new state-of-the-art amusement rides and interactive science museum, participants came up with a wide range of events and festivals, arts, performance, and sporting venues, opportunities for local artists and businesses, designs for new structures and even for interim activities that could happen in the summer of 2009. The ideas generated during these public meetings are now joining ideas generated by a “dream team” of designers, architects, engineers, economists, and entertainment producers that are convening today and tomorrow at the New York Aquarium in Coney Island to Imagine Coney. The results of their vision will be unveiled at a public presentation at the Brooklyn Academy of Music on Monday, November 17th, 6:30 p.m. The presentation free and open to the public, so please join us.
