Deaf Center Breaking Law, say Opponents

There's a battle brewing over a deaf center on New York's Coney Island. A group representing other businesses do not want the Deaf and Wellness Recreation Center to open. They've complained to city that breaks the building codes of the Island because, they say, the only businesses that are to be allowed are supposed to have an entertainment focus. The Center's leadership defends the outreach, saying it IS a entertainment center--for the deaf and the elderly. You'll find the Center's website here. The Brooklyn Paper has more on the controversy here.
