New details have emerged in the Marty Markowitz backed $50 million Coney Island amphitheater , a plan that will transform the landmark Childs Restaurant into a multi-purpose performance and park space. The project has been a longstanding goal of Borough President Markowitz, who believes that the location will iron out any concerns raised by the local community  in previous plans to build something similar.
Brooklyn Daily reported  on the many new features of the project located along the boardwalk between West 21st Street and West 22nd Street. Here is a summarized list of the most standout details:
Architect Randolph Gerner summed up the goals of the project.
“We’re able to blend the historic character of this building into the new elements,” Gerner said.
So far, it sounds like the amphitheater will be a great addition to Coney Island. The project is expected to be fully completed by 2015.
