Go Listen to This Coney Island-Themed Playlist Marty Markowitz Made on Spotify

Thank god for Marty Markowitz, possibly the only lovable politician left in New York. Today, the Brooklyn borough president released a soundtrack to rebuilding a Sandy-shattered Coney Island on Spotify. It's got Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive," Brooklynite synth-addicts Matt and Kim, and the Beastie Boys. Markowitz's playlist even includes a shout-out to Jay-Z, though last month he told the Post that he went to a Jay-Z concert and "did not understand most of it."
