Subject: Boardwalk petition - PLEASE DISTRIBUTE!

Hi folks, 

Usually, I never send out requests for signing on to online petitions. But we've got a problem here in southern Brooklyn and the Parks Department won't give us the time of day. 

Parks is trying to turn the iconic, historic Coney Island boardwalk into a concrete slab sidewalk. We have evidence that this will exacerbate storm surge damage, but of course, they won't listen. There are sustainable woods that can be used on the boardwalk, but Parks is insisting on concrete. 

Our two shoreline Councilmen, Mark Treyger and Chaim Deutsch, have started this online petition to try and get the boardwalk declared a scenic landmark, which will help to preserve its character. But in order to do so, they need to show that there is public interest in this.

So please sign, distribute to your lists and add to your Facebook pages.
