Brooklyn Reconstructed: ZIPPER

February 27, 2013 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Brooklyn Reconstructed ends on a high note with Amy Nicholson’s new hit documentary, “Zipper“. Small-time ride operator Eddie Miranda proudly runs a carnival contraption called the Zipper in the heart of Coney Island’s gritty amusement district. Eddie and his ride are driven away when the City of New York and an opportunistic real estate mogul lock horns over the future of the “People’s Playground.” A film about greed, politics, land use and public policy, and the battle over an American cultural icon, Zipper captures a market-driven world where growth often trumps preservation, and the Zipper may be only the beginning of what is lost. Filmmaker Amy Nicholson present for Q&A.
