BatteryPark.TV has learned that the DOT will delay the opening of the West Thames grass lawn. It was scheduled to be open next week on July 22, but due to the Battery Park Conservancy still refusing to assume control of maintenance, the DOT will prevent the neglect that occurred last year which led to a rundown mud field.
As a result, local residents will be without use of the field for picnics, sun bathing, Wiffle Ball, small groups of T-ball, etc.
To voice your protest over this bureaucratic squabbling, contact:
