Coney Island watchdogs demand DEC revoke permits for ferry project after illegal dredging

A cadre of Coney Island activists diligently monitoring the dredging of Coney Island Creek are calling on the state to end work on the peninsula’s coming ferry landing after new video shows toxic materials being dumped into the waterway.

“Today we are standing here because our worst suspicions have been confirmed,” said Assemblymember Mathylde Frontus at a Nov. 10 press conference on the improper dredging. “The city is telling us one thing — they are keeping us safe — but they are doing something else when they think no one is looking.”
