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:

Director of the Parks Conservancy, Tess Huxley thuxley@bpcparks.org

and/or

CEO, Battery Park City Authority, Gayle Horwitz gayle.horwitz@batteryparkcity.org

BPCA Phone (212) 267-9700

If these public officials ignore your letters or calls, you can relay your experience to the New York State Office of the Inspector General.
