Council passes legislation banning large vehicles from city boardwalks

Vehicles are now banned from Coney Island’s Riegelmann Boardwalk, after a local pol’s bill got the green light in the City Council on Thursday — preserving the crumbling monument from further damage brought on by the heavy four-wheelers.

“The historic Riegelmann Boardwalk in Coney Island is not the Belt Parkway,” said Councilmember Mark Treyger. “It is an iconic American place of leisure and recreation — it was not designed as a roadway for utility vehicles.”
