Coney Island's Shore Theater now being used by homeless squatters - NY Daily News
A squalid and long-abandoned Coney Island movie palace has been taken over by homeless squatters.
A woman was seen Tuesday sleeping on a mattress among the peeling plaster and collapsing walls on the fourth floor of the historic Shore Theater on Surf Ave.
The interior has the apocalyptic air of a bombed-out shell that might be seen in a horror movie. Steel wires hang from the rotting ceilings above heaps of dust-strewn wood and bags filled with debris.
