More on Coney

The Gotahmist is making it easy for me to keep tabs on Coney Island's redevelopment, which I previously weighed in on.

The Daily New article is most notable for mentioning Democratic City Councilman Domenic Recchia, who in his previous life was a little Italian man whose Spanish class I was in for one semester in high school. (There wasn't much demand for Italian at Lincoln.) This was first semester Spanish, before they could split us up into honors and non-honors, so the class wasn't... very good. His method of getting the class under control was to go up to students who were talking and make a claw out of his hand and point it at them. It was oddly effective, and undoubtedly will come in handing for resolving impasses whilst crafting local ordinances.
