Some of you might have noticed that the lot at the western terminus of Greenpoint Avenue (the designated site of WNYC Transmitter Park) has received a heaping helping of mulch. I was initially mystified but have since heard some neighborhood buzz that might shed some light on this recent turn of events: this space will be temporarily opened as a dog run.

Although I am pleased at the prospect that north Greenpoint’s mutts might finally— albeit temporarily— have a place to stretch their legs (and sniff each other’s butts) and I might have the opportunity to see the WNYC Transmitter building up close and personal (it’s a lovely Art Deco building) I must confess that I cannot stop asking myself:

Where’s my park?

  2. I’ve just visited the park today, I noticed it on my way biking home. People will be happy to know that is NOT A DOG PARK, but a really nice little park with fresh mulch and a whole bunch of brand new picnic tables! Beautiful place to watch the sun set. It closes at dusk (though the sun set had faded a great deal and it was still open when I left), and it is dog friendly, but you need to have the dog on a leash. So far, none of the big amenities are in it as will be in the end, and you can’t get all the way to the water (it’s all gated off), but it is wheel chair accessible, and it is so clean (for now anyway)!

Tell me what you're thinking...
