Rapid T Rabbi!

A true Coney Island spirit has passed away. I’m very sorry to tell you about the passing of Richard Concepcion known to many as Rapid T Rabbit. He was a huge Coney Island lover & very active in our pursuit to save it. He attended all of our demonstrations in his rabbit suit. He joined our crazy adventure sneaking into the City Planning Office (link to this hilarious escapade in bio) with . Unique spirits like Richard’s are what Coney Island is all about. He loved care bears, was a huge carousel enthusiast & had a cable show where he dressed in his Rabbit costume & interviewed people (I’m going to try to dig up the episode which I was on). Rest In Peace Richard. Your unique spirit will live on in the Coney Island experience you helped to save & contributed to. Sending lots of love to all his family & friends.
