LAST GASP: More Dumping At The Manhattan Avenue Kayak Launch?
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic, Newtown Creek
As some of you might recall, a lot of noise has been made, well, about the noise emanating from the property adjacent to the Manhattan Avenue Kayak Launch. For those of you who are not in the know, you can get up to speed by clicking here. I have not heard any complaints about this matter— or piece of public space— for several days. No worries, now I have a new one. Laura writes:
These pictures aren’t the greatest because Mike used his cell phone to take the photos. But Mike saw a Parks Dept employee dump a bunch of bushes in the Newtown Creek. (He’s not sure if there was anything else). He called ST (Stephanie Thayer, Parks Supervisor for all parks in Community Board 1 and Executive Chair of Open Space Alliance— Ed. Note.), who says something will be done.
Was this the handiwork of a Parks Department employee? Quite frankly it is too hard to tell given the photographs. However, this is one piece of foliage that didn’t make it to mulchfest!
