August 27, 2014- Did we cause this story? No one else has complained about Brookfield Place destroying the neighborhood before we did.
Downtown Express reports, “But for seven years, the short 0.3 mile stretch of bike path from Vesey to Albany St. has been blocked off completely due to construction work in front of Brookfield Place (formerly the World Financial Center)…“This would never happen in Germany, it would never happen in Japan, it would never happen in the Netherlands, it wouldn’t happen in Paris,” said Komanoff. “New York is now a big biking place, so where is the screaming? No one can believe that the return of the bike path isn’t just around the corner.”…The Battery Park City Authority as well as the New York State Department of Transportation expect the construction work to be completed and the bike path to reopen sometime late next year.”
