In an exclusive story for the NY Post, Rich Calder writes:
Frustrated by stubborn Coney Island landowners, the de Blasio administration plans to seize property under the city’s rarely used power of eminent domain in order to spur long-stalled economic development in the People’s Playground, The Post has learned.

For those of us who grew up in 70s Brooklyn, the New York City depicted in The Warriors wasn't that far-fetched. Sure, there weren't marauding gangs dressed as baseball players or mimes (as far as we know) but the 1979 cult classic didn't need to rely on movie magic to create the post-apocalyptic look of a lot of the Big Apple back then.
Fast-forward to 2015. Coney Island looks very different now, but the love for The Warriors has only gotten stronger. Rolling Stone joined most of the cast members that made up the gang, as they reunited on the Q Train on September 13th to take one last ride home together, where hundreds waited at a fan-organized event.
Can you dig it?

This movie mega mashup set in a Brooklyn disco is the best thing you'll see all week.
According to 'Parisian Mash-up Whiz' Antonio Maria Da Silva, his mind-bogglingly cool new video occurs in "a place where all fictional characters meet. Outside of time, outside of all logic, this place is known as HELL'S CLUB, but this club is not safe."
Watch multiple screen versions of Tom Cruise, Al Pacino, Ewan McGregor, John Travolta, and so many more mix and mingle in a Superdisco bathed in red light. The Star Wars universe jockeys for dance floor space with the Terminator while Austin Powers looks on from the bar. Scarface meets Carlito as the Butabi brothers cut a rug.
And since Saturday Night Fever is heavily featured in this mashup masterpiece, we're claiming it all happened in Brooklyn... and you can't prove it didn't. Nobody can.
