"According to the statistics collected by the Census Bureau in 2000, there are thousands of people who would be served by a park at the St. Saviour's site, as they live within .5 miles of it. A half mile is considered to be a 10 minute walk, according to PlanYC. And here's visual proof that the site is surrounded on 3 sides by houses. In addition, there are many workers in the industrial area that have used the site for respite in the past, and even more would today.
So when someone tells you the location sits amidst a cluster of factories and is therefore not a suitable location for a park, you can prove to him that he doesn't know what the hell he's talking about.
