BILL NUMBER:S1610

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to authorize the city of New York to discontinue the use as parkland of
parcels of real property in the borough of Brooklyn in exchange for the
dedication of certain other lands in the borough of Brooklyn for park
purposes in furtherance of a comprehensive development plan for Coney
Island

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

This bill authorizes the city of New York to discontinue permanently
the use as parkland 9.3 acres of land on two parcels that currently
operate as a parking facility for the Brooklyn Cyclones, a minor
league baseball team owned by the Mets, and the indoor Abe Stark
skating rink, in Coney Island, in the Borough of Brooklyn. This
authorization is subject to the requirement that the city of New York
shall dedicate additional acreage as park land adjacent to the
existing park land.

This bill would also authorize the City of New York to enter into a
long-term lease for the development and long-term management of
portions of the replacement parkland as an amusement park.

REASONS FOR SUPPORT:

In connection with the proposed Comprehensive Coney Island
Redevelopment Plan, this legislation would allow the City to alienate
and improve two parking lots that support KeySpan Park during
baseball season (but are dormant the rest of the year) through the
development of residential buildings with ground-floor retail
pursuant to the proposed zoning by private developers to be
determined by the city. Currently, 18.2 acres of land along the
Riegelmann Boardwalk is mapped as parkland. This area includes
KeySpan Park, its parking lots and the Abe Stark skating rink.
The redevelopment of these parking lots is vital to the creation of a
new neighborhood, providing much-needed retail and housing
opportunities for the 50,000 residents of Coney Island, creating new
connections between the community and the beach and maximizing the
value of Boardwalk fronting properties. The parking spaces currently
located on these parcels would be replaced within the future
development in multi-level garages. The Abe Stark skating rink would
be relocated and replaced.

The 10.77 acres of replacement parkland will be composed of two parks:
1) a 9.37-acre Boardwalk fronting amusement park in the historic
amusement area, and 2) a 1.40-acre Boardwalk fronting neighborhood
park located directly adjacent to the proposed residential development.

Together, these parks add 1.47 more acres of improved parkland in
Coney Island than exist today. Unlike the 9.3 acres currently used
for parking that would be discontinued as parkland, all 10.77 acres
of replacement parkland would be improved for recreation purposes.


The mapping of the amusement park is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity
to preserve amusement uses in perpetuity in their historic location.
The park would include without limitation amusement park features
such as indoor and outdoor rides, arcades, attractions and ancillary
uses including small-scale retail. The authorization to enter into a
long-term lease would facilitate the development and operation of a
long-term financially viable amusement park for generations to come.
Coney Island is a unique place and the City is committed to improving
the neighborhood as well as protecting, preserving and renewing Coney
Island's legacy as the birth place of amusements and "the people's
playground" for the people of Coney Island, New York City and the
world.

Accordingly, the Mayor urges the earliest possible favorable
consideration of this proposal by the Legislature.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
2009-10: S.6298A - Died in Senate Rules
Same as A.9478A - Passed Assembly 143-1

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None to the State.
According to the City of New York, the mapping and de-mapping of
parkland creates the development framework for the City's comprehensive
plan that would lead to: - Over 6,000 permanent and 25,000 construction
jobs - Over 900 units of affordable housing - 500,000 square feet of
retail, and - More than $14 billion of economic activity.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

Immediately.
