RESOLUTION NO. 985

 

Resolution calling upon the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission to designate the Riegelmann Boardwalk in Coney Island as a scenic landmark pursuant to Section 3020 of the New York City Charter.

 

By Council Members Treyger, Deutsch, Levine, Greenfield, Koo, Chin, Palma, Johnson, Koslowitz, Barron, Borelli, Cabrera, Cohen, Constantinides, Cornegy, Crowley, Cumbo, Dickens, Dromm, Espinal, Eugene, Ferreras-Copeland, Garodnick, Gentile, Gibson, Grodenchik, Kallos, King, Lancman, Lander, Levin, Maisel, Matteo, Mealy, Menchaca, Mendez, Miller, Reynoso, Richards, Rodriguez, Rose, Rosenthal, Torres, Ulrich, Vacca, Vallone, Van Bramer, Williams, Wills, Salamanca and The Public Advocate (Ms. James)

 

Whereas, the Riegelmann Boardwalk, commonly known as the Coney Island Boardwalk, has been a New York City destination since it was first opened to the public on May 15th, 1923; and

Whereas, the wooden Boardwalk was the centerpiece of the plan of Edward Riegelmann, Brooklyn Borough President from 1918 to 1924, to beautify and improve public access to the beaches at Coney Island; and

Whereas, after a 1938 expansion of the boardwalk to Brighton Beach and subsequent improvements, the Boardwalk now stretches a distance of 2.7 miles, from West 37th Street to Corbin Place; and

Whereas, the wooden Boardwalk is an iconic and beloved structure for the community and New York City; and

Whereas, the wooden Boardwalk is an internationally recognized tourist attraction, drawing visitors from all over the world, helping to maintain the City’s status as a worldwide tourist center; and

Whereas, the wooden Boardwalk serves as a central hub tying together the various attractions, businesses, and residents that make up the Coney Island neighborhood; and

Whereas, the wooden Boardwalk is a vital part of the City’s historic, aesthetic and cultural heritage; now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That the Council of the City of New York calls upon the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission to designate the Riegelmann Boardwalk, Borough of Brooklyn, as a scenic landmark pursuant to Section 3020 of the New York City Charter.

Adopted.
