Coney Island

Coney Island is a residential and commercial neighborhood and entertainment area, located on a peninsula in the southwestern part of the borough of Brooklyn in New York City. The neighborhood is bounded by Manhattan Beach to its east, Lower New York Bay to the south and west, Gravesend to the north, includes the subsections of Sea Gate to its west and Brighton Beach to its east. Coney Island was the westernmost of the Outer Barrier islands on the southern shore of Long Island, but in the early 20th century it became a peninsula, connected to the rest of Long Island by land fill; the origin of Coney Island's name is disputed, but the area was part of the colonial town of Gravesend. By the mid-19th century it had become a seaside resort, by the late 19th century, amusement parks had been built at the location; the attractions reached a historical peak during the first half of the 20th century. However, they declined in popularity after World War II, following years of neglect, several structures were torn down.

Various redevelopment projects were proposed for Coney Island in the 1970s through the 2000s, though most of these were not carried out. The area was revitalized with the opening of MCU Park in 2001 and several amusement rides in the 2010s. Coney Island has 31,965 residents as of the 2010 United States Census; the neighborhood is ethnically diverse, the neighborhood's poverty rate of 27% is higher than that of the city as a whole. Coney Island is part of Brooklyn Community District 13 and its primary ZIP Code is 11224, it is patrolled by the 60th Precinct of the New York City Police Department. Fire services are provided by the New York City Fire Department's Engine 245/Ladder 161/Battalion 43 and Engine 318/Ladder 166. Politically, Coney Island is represented by the New York City Council's 47th District; the area is well served by the New York City Subway and local bus routes, contains several public elementary and middle schools. The Coney Island neighborhood is coextensive with the peninsula of the same name, located on the western end of Long Island lying to the west of the Outer Barrier islands along Long Island's southern shore.

The peninsula is 0.5 miles wide. It extends into Lower New York Bay with Sheepshead Bay to its northeast, Gravesend Bay and Coney Island Creek to its northwest, the main part of Brooklyn to its north. At its highest it is 7 feet above sea level. Coney Island was an actual island, separated from greater Brooklyn by Coney Island Creek, was the westernmost of the Outer Barrier islands. A large section of the creek was filled in the 1930s, turning the island into a peninsula. A narrower definition of the Coney Island neighborhood is given by the Encyclopedia of New York City, which only considers the area west of Ocean Parkway to be part of that neighborhood; the perimeter of Coney Island features manmade structures designed to maintain its current shape. The beaches are not a natural feature. Sand has been redeposited on the beaches via beach nourishment since the construction of Riegelmann Boardwalk in 1922–1923, is held in place by around two dozen groynes. A large sand-replenishing project along Coney Island and Brighton Beach took place in the 1990s.

Sheepshead Bay at the peninsula's northeast corner is, for the most part. Two major parks, Kaiser Park and Coney Island Creek Park, are located on the northwest side of the peninsula along Coney Island Creek; the original Native American inhabitants of the region, the Lenape, called this area Narrioch. This name has been attributed the meaning of "land without shadows" or "always in light" describing how its south facing beaches always remained in sunlight. A second meaning attributed to Narrioch is "point" or "corner of land". There is no clear historical consensus on how the island got the name "Coney Island". A version of this name, Conyne Eylandt, shows up in early 17th century Dutch maps; the most popular theory is the name came from the old spelling of the Dutch word for rabbit, "conyn", derived from a purported large population of wild rabbits, giving it the name "Rabbit Island", with the name being anglicized to Coney Island after the English took over the colony in 1664, coney being the corresponding English word.

It could be a corruption of the name of the Native American tribe, the Konoh or Konoi, who once inhabited the island. Other origins put forward include it was the surname of a family of Dutch settlers who lived there, or that "Conyne" was a distortion of the name of Henry Hudson's second mate on the Halve Maen, John Colman, slain by natives on the 1609 expedition and buried at a place they named Colman's Point coinciding with Coney Island, Giovanni da Verrazzano was the first European explorer to discover the island of Narrioch during his expeditions to the area in 1527 and 1529, he was subsequently followed by Henry Hudson. The Dutch established the colony of New Amsterdam in present-day Coney Island in the early 17th century; the Native American population in the area dwindled as the Dutch settlement grew and the entire southwest section of present-day Brooklyn was purchased in 1645 from the Native Americans in exchange for a gun, a blanket, a kettle. In 1644, a colonist named Guysbert Op Dyck was given a patent for 88 acres of land in the town of Gravesend, on the southwestern shore of Brooklyn.

The patent included Conyne Island, an island just off the southwestern shore of the town of Gravesend, as well as Conyne Hook, a peninsula just east of the island. At the time, both were part of Gravesend. East of Conyn

Pluramycin A

Pluramycin A is an antibiotic/anticancer compound that inhibits nucleic acid biosynthesis. The pluramycin family of natural products are an important group of complex C-aryl glycoside antibiotics that possess the tetracyclic 4H-anthrapyran-4,7,12-trione moiety A–D as an aromatic core; the D-ring is adorned with two deoxyaminosugars. The E-ring sugar is angolosamine, a carbohydrate, found in the antibiotic angolamycin; the F-ring sugar is the N,N-dimethyl derivative of vancosamine, the sugar found in the glycopeptide antibiotic vancomycin. These compounds exhibit in vitro antitumor activity by DNA alkylation, where the two proximal amino sugars, D-angolosamine and N,N-dimethyl-L-vancosamine, play a key role in sequence recognition in intercalation of the tetracyclic chromophore
