It wasn't the rickety old Cyclone or the boardwalk that first attracted people to Coney Island. The first attraction, according to historian Charles Denson, was a little farther down Neptune Avenue: the Coney Island Creek. Decades later, it's still a natural sanctuary for fishing, boating and escaping the concrete jungle of New York City. But with high levels of fecal coliform found in the water on a routine basis - especially within the past year - the creek is also one of the city's filthiest waterways. This investigation examines how it got this way and who should be held accountable.
