Residents concerned with cracks in new Coney Island boardwalk

CONEY ISLAND - Some Brooklyn residents are calling on the city and the Department of Parks and Recreation to better maintain portions of the Coney Island boardwalk that were replaced last year.

Coney Island and Brighton Beach residents say the portions of the boardwalk that have been converted from wood to concrete between the two communities are falling apart and that large cracks have appeared in the cement.

The city says the concrete is structurally sound and the minor hairline cracks are not a safety concern.

Some residents also say the new boardwalk is an eyesore.
