Curbed Flickr pool/mamckenna, Daily News/LPC

The iconic Childs Restaurant building on the Coney Island boardwalk is going to be turned into a large amphitheater that will include a year-round restaurant. The Daily News reports that the Landmarks Preservation Commission voted to support the $53 million plan to renovate the 89-year-old building yesterday. If everything goes according to plan, the city will purchase the building and the adjacent lot, and lease out a portion of the space to a restaurateur. The Daily News notes: "The food is expected to be similar to the pancakes and other breakfast fare served by the old Childs Restaurant." And, as a part of the plan, the terracotta figures on the front of the building will be restored.
