The group of boardwalk businesses known as The Coney Island Eight that have been fighting the eviction notices they received last fall in court and may live to see another sun-soaked season.

Those close to the negotiation say the business group is in talks with their landlord, Central Amusement International, to stay open through November 2012. The deal would allow cherished holdouts such as Ruby's Bar and Grill to have one more summer.

The landlord said it decided not to renew the proprietors' leases so it could update the historic boardwalk and make it a year-round destination.

Perry from Coney Island

Coney Island has never looked better with all the old eye sore building torn down around 12th street and Stillwell Ave. It would look even better if those business were closed down and knocked to the ground. It's time to take Coney Island out of a few business owners and put it back in the hands of the peopel that care. NExt they should NOT ALLOW food on the beach.
