CONEY ISLAND - A lack of funding is holding up repair work on the Coney Island boardwalk, according to the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation.

Holes, nails and loose boards are dotted along the boardwalk, which is often used by runners. Councilman Domenic Recchia says several people have filed lawsuits due to injuries they've suffered. Parks department officials say they are forced to make spot repairs.

The department says it is awaiting funding from the city to replace the boardwalk. Developer Thor Equities, which recently purchased property along the boardwalk, says it is willing to work with the city to make repairs.
