Sandy-Damaged Denny’s Delight to Close for Good


The unofficial mayor of Coney Island says the $50,000 of damage incurred by Hurricane Sandy is insurmountable and he will not reopen Denny’s Delight. Dick Zigun has owned Denny’s, which is famous for its banana-pistachio twist, since 1978. “There’s no more Denny’s Ice Cream,” he tells the Brooklyn Paper. “We are out of the ice cream business.” Zigun says he hopes another ice cream vendor will come along and sell sweets in his place, one block from the boardwalk.
