With less than a month to go before beach season kicks off, a slew of construction is going on over in Coney Island with the hopes of having new restaurants and attractions ready in time.

Aside from the construction of the Thunderbolt roller coasterAmusing the Zillion points out that several businesses are in the works.

Among them are two mom-and-pop businesses: Lunatic Ice Cream and Luna Park Cafe are currently under construction on Surf Avenue and both aim to open in May, the site reports.

Of course, it wouldn’t be the “new” Coney Island if it didn’t include more franchises. The neighborhood received an Applebee’s and It’Sugar last year, adding to Popeye’s, Dunkin’ Donuts and McDonald’s.

But there are several more in the works, according to Amusing the Zillion. Currently under construction are Johnny Rockets, Burger-Fi, Subway Cafe and Red Mango.

Tricia at AtZ has been documenting the construction, and gives some background on those locations. Check it out.
