Coney Island landowner Joe Sitt finally sat down with The Brooklyn Paper. Here are the highlights:

Sitt says Bloomberg has been his toughest foe: “We’ve gotten people motivated, excited and interested in Coney Island … and for six and a half years, we’ve hit a brick wall with the city.”

He dismissed critics who said he’s done nothing with his land in Coney Island: “It’s more active this year than it’s been in 20 years.”

His financial officer says he’s got the cash to build his proposed Xanadu of hotels, new rides and retail stores right now: “We have the capital and we have a team of experts,” said Gwen Lockhart.

He thinks Bloomberg will fail: “I’ve never seen government succeed as a developer anywhere in the world.”
