Actors dressed as an auctioneer, investors and the Coney Island Mermaids paraded down Stillwell Avenue on Coney Island Thursday urging developer Joseph Sitt and city officials to revise re-development plans to include the preservation of several historic buildings.
Joe Rivero, a spokesperson for the Save Coney Island campaign, said that the group would bring in engineers to help developers evaluate the soundness of the historic sites.
Beach-goers and locals alike looked on as the group of actors drummed up a lot of noise around lunch time.
Business owner Dennis Corines is excited about the current re-development plans, but he would also like to see certain buildings saved and restored. A spokesperson from Sitt's development company, Thor Equities, did not return calls for comment.
