You want a waterfront park at the end of India Street In Greenpoint?
The Parks Department says "No problem". Well, actually there are quite a few:
1. A wall will be built of (what else) concrete barring access to the waterfront because:
a. The DEP will get involved because the park fronts the water
b. There is a sinkhole on said space
c. The adjacent property owners (one of whom has a driveway that cuts into said park space) are concerned that hoi polloi can gain access to their property.
2. A feral cat colony will be displaced.
3. This park is temporary.
Come to think of it, you should just read my blog post instead:
