New York City Buys Historic Coney Island Tract From Developer

A sign for the historic Wonder Wheel is seen at the Coney Island amusement park November 12, 2009 in the Brooklyn borough of New York City. After years of blight, city officials have agreed to purchase seven acres of real estate in Coney Island for around $96 million in order to expand and modernize the amusement area. The area has been deteriorating for decades following an earlier heralded era with seaside luxury hotels where the roller coaster and hot dog were invented.

U-haul

I moved back to town. District 3, workingclass environment and old houses, built in the 1920s. The view is terrific and life seems to be everywhere.

Parking is a nightmare or you end up feeding the parking meters for hours....




But for next time I'll get a real mover truck and have the job done by professional movers, never ever will I carry all my stuff upstairs to the 4th floor!
