"Roller Skating Rink planned for Coney Island"

NEW YORK (AP) -- A Coney Island entrepreneur said she is planning to open a new roller skating rink in the area.

Lola Staar Souvenir Boutique owner Dianna Carlin tells the New York Post that she is close to completing a deal to build a rink on what is now a seashore parking lot. She says she hopes to open in the summer.

The addition of a roller skating rink to the neighborhood would be a boost to a well-worn collection of amusements.

Brooklyn has been without a roller skating rink since Empire Roller Skating Center in the Crown Heights neighborhood closed down in April.
