Greenpoint Photos Du Jour: Hallelujah!

On April 21, 2009 I wrote (in regards to the waterfront park slated for northern terminus of Manhattan Avenue):

I’ll believe this park’s for real when my ass is firmly planted on one of those futuristic park benches!


Well here’s my fat ass planted on one such bench. This photograph was taken today, May 2, 2009, at approximately 2:30 p.m.


Although the Brooklyn Paper reported that this park would be open in either June or July.


It very much appears to be open.




Get down there and check it out!


It’s amazing how effective one news story the New York Times did NOT find fit to print (and as a result found its way onto a “neighborhood blog”) and one leaked Parks Department memorandum are at motivating our municipal entities to quit making excuses and get the job done. Looking at this couple enjoying their new park even warms the cockles of my cynical, jaded heart. Congratulations Greenpoint, you at long last have an honest-to-god (if still a little rough around the edges) waterfront park! Enjoy it.
