The New Park on Manhattan Avenue

Since it is a dreary day I thought it would be nice to share the latest photos I have taken of the new park under construction at the northern terminus of Manhattan Avenue.

All the walkways have been paved.

Park benches and decorative rocks have been installed.

Shrubberies have been planted. All in all, it looks very nice.

Keep Out

Too bad the scenery to be enjoyed there is luxury condoville in Queens West.

I have yet to get any word as to when this park will be open to the public. I can advise people to stay out of it in the meantime, though: a week ago a friend of mine saw the police arrest a man who was fishing* here. Whether or not it was for trespassing or being incredibly stupid is anyone’s guess.

*Yes, some Greenpointers actually fish in Newtown Creek (and the East River). They don’t release either; they take these scrumptious morsels home to eat. I have seen this with my own eyes.
