Move over, Jones Beach! City funding to the tune of $36 million has been secured for a 10-acre makeover of Coney Island’s Asser Levy Park that will result in the construction of a “world-class” amphitheater, according to Sheepshead Bay News. The development will run between Sea Breeze Avenue to the north, Surf Avenue to the south and West 5th Street to the west. The formal review process for the project is supposed to start sometime this year, and officials are looking to break ground by August 2009 and possibly be finished with it by summer 2011. English architecture firm Grimshaw, which designed the new Cemusa bus shelters, will be the architect for the amphitheater.
