CONEY ISLAND - A City Councilman from Brooklyn is getting involved in the battle between Zamperla and The Coney Island 8.

City Councilman Domenic M. Recchia, Jr. is now pushing for the Coney Island businesses that were ordered to vacate to give up their properties. Recchia says he is not taking sides in the argument and is only trying to move forward.

He says that by refusing to leave, they are endangering Coney Island of the large number of jobs Zamperla has promised.
