Supporters and critics of potential Coney Island casino confront each other outside engagement meeting
Supporters and critics of a plan to bring a casino to Coney Island confronted each other Monday outside the second session of a public engagement meeting held by Brooklyn Borough President Antonio Reynoso.
News 12 reported that The Coney would include a hotel, concert hall, convention center and a casino. The location, between Cyclone Stadium and the aquarium, is designed to be a community and citywide destination.
Critics said the venture would invite more crime and traffic to the area.
News 12’s Mary-Lyn Buckley was outside the meeting where both sides were chanting and arguing their points.
