BROOKLYN, N.Y., Dec. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — In an effort to help recruit local businesses to Coney Island, Thor Equities will slash rents at its parcels at the brand new building at Surf and Stillwell for the Summer of 2013 and fill the spaces primarily with Brooklyn-based merchants, Thor CEO Joe Sitt announced today.

“Coney Island’s popularity has reached record proportions, but we can never forget what got us here – local, ahead-of-their-time business owners who brought flair, hipness and edge to the People’s Playground,” Sitt said. “While it is wonderful that national chains are now coming to Coney, providing needed jobs and year-round revenue to the community, we must always remember the history of this iconic neighborhood.”
