Concepts for Coney island have been drawn up by group made up of architects, economists and the local community

Images have been released of a new concept design for Coney Island in New York. The plans include a variety of indoor and outdoor facilities which can be implemented by summer 2009 and would take advantage of parcels of undeveloped land in Coney Island, much of which is now vacant or operating as street-level parking.

The concept is the product of “Imagine Coney”, a call for ideas which involved public input meetings and a design workshop involving architects and economists.

The images have been put together by squint opera.
