From the NY Post:
Plastic is the new wood, a judge has decided — at least when it comes to Coney Island’s boardwalk.
Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Martin Solomon has green- lighted the city’s plan to replace five blocks of the historic — but rickety — structure with concrete and recycled-plastic planks, according to court documents made public yesterday.
Some Brooklynites were quick to slam the decision.
“The Coney Island boardwalk is nostalgic, and it’s famous world-round,” fumed Todd Dobrin, president of a group called Friends of the Boardwalk.
“I don’t think tourists are going to come to see the Coney Island driveway.”
