Walking "The Boards" is not just about getting from one point to another. The feel of the wood under feet is part of the strolling experience. The sound of the wood beneath your steps gives pause that you are not walking on a street or Boulevard, and on occasion a whiff of a piece of replaced wood added to the smell of salt water and cotton candy make you realize that you are in the one and only..... Coney Island. Please...don't replace the flexing wood with cold unflexable concrete and plastic. The BOARDwalk should remain a BOARD walk.

I lived in Coney Island for 35 years; all y childhood memories aré of C I, my brothers and i would go under the Boardwalk looking for treasures people dropped through the cracks. Please don't change it. I still visit family in the summertime. I look forward to that when I go.

Philistines want to rip up the boardwalk . Not to save the rain forests but to save money and also so they can build it out of concrete and put a truck road on it .

Im signing because I don't agree with the Boardwalk being turned into a sidewalk. Due to the fact that the parks department aren't listening to the public, it isn't right for them to immediately decide for what's best for us when they don't even consider what we want.

I grew up in Coney Island. The Boardwalk has been a part of my life ever since I can remember. I used to walk it from Sea Gate to Brighton Beach. Don't destroy a part of the history of Coney Island
