Boards or Concrete at Coney Island?

The New York Times offers an update on the ongoing debate about whether the boardwalk at Coney Island will be replaced with something other than boards.

The article quotes schoolteacher Robert Burstein, who runs on the boardwalk daily:

Robert Burstein, 56, a schoolteacher who daily takes five-mile runs on the Boardwalk, said people flocked to it because they “want respite from concrete; we have concrete all around us.”
