LAST GASP: WNYC Transmitter Park

Taken May 13, 2012 at 7:30 p.m.

UPDATE, 10:17 p.m.: If a commenter is to be believed, this park is not officially open to the public— not that anyone is actually doing anything about it, mind you. He/she writes:

At around 8:30 P.M. today a local lady was calling 911 on all the people in Transmitter Park in Greenpoint because its not open. 311 and the construction comp dont care. She told me they broke the lock on the gate. I told her there is not any lock nor is there a chain. She stilled just continued to call numbers on her cell. lol

Whoops.

  8. Those exposed steel beams would tend to indicate that there is still serious work to be done. Some kind of dock or platform, maybe. I’m guessing that the Local 911 caller was told that this was NOT an emergency. I certainly hope so.
