We’d like to say: Watch this corner for coming attractions! We certainly hope it doesn’t become a flea market or remain an empty lot. The snow-covered expanse at the corner of Surf Avenue and 12th Street is where the Bank of Coney Island building stood for nearly 90 years. The building had remained vacant since real estate speculator Joe Sitt of Thor Equities bought it in 2005 for $3 million. The bank was demolished in November.
Thanks to photographer Jim McDonnell for another excellent pic from his first walk of the new year in snowy Coney Island.
