Coney Island is only getting better

Last February, the city took a major step toward the revitalization of Coney Island when they designated Central Amusement International to develop and operate a number of properties in the historic amusement district, with an eye toward transforming the neighborhood into a thriving, year-round seaside destination. The first phase of this transformation was realized in May with the opening of the new Luna Park on the vacant former site of Astroland. Comment.

The brief history of football in New York — and Brooklyn

New York was once alive with sports — street corner jibes about which of the three baseball teams was your pride, your deep faith. In the American League, we had the always well-tended Yanks of high spending, multi-million dollar owners. In the national league, of course, our beloved Dodgers and, over in Manhattan, the Giants (named so because, in the early years of the game, the won so often). Comment.

Coney Island doesn’t have to be a Sitt-ing duck

Stab’s America — by the numbers

In 2002, in the wake of 9-11, there were 1,463 claims of discrimination against Muslims in U.S. workplaces. As things quieted down, that number dropped significantly until 2008, when it climbed to 1,304. Coincidently (?) that was the year Barack Hussein Obama ran and was elected president. With his popularity slowly sinking into the sunset, bias claims rose again to a new high of 1,490 last year. Another fluke? Maybe — maybe not. Comment.
