Despite neighborhood outrage, Coney Island developer Joseph Sitt of Thor Equities has no plans to clear out tattered tents and garbage in the empty lots on Stillwell Avenue, according to the New York Daily News. While community advocates call the stretch of Coney Island “dark and dingy,” insiders say that Sitt has no plans to put any attractions there in the near future. One unnamed ride operator said that Sitt’s demands were too severe to make the developing on Stillwell Avenue a viable option. [NYDN]
