The relief organization #ConeyRecovers doled out some big money to some needy Coney Island businesses. According to a News 12 report, an event was held at Gargiulo’s Restaurant (2911 West 15th Street) where a range of Coney businesses received grants of $100,000 each.

The grants, culled from private fund raising, hope to not just help specific businesses but get the entire Coney Island community back on its feet.

“This award is helpful in funding all of the efforts that we are providing here on Coney Island,” Pastor Edwin Malave, a grant recipient, told News 12.
