The New York Times is reporting that the nearby sports facility at Pier 40 might be shut down due to the cost of repairs as the infrastructure ages. The Hudson River Park Trust (HRPT) operates the facility. It also operates the “Pataki Highway” and the West Thames Park in BPC.
Our own Battery Park City Authority should take a cue from the HRPT before spending millions more on the money pit at Pier A . The BPCA might want to consider selling Pier A to the federal government, which owns the nearby war monuments, or to the for-profit developers who will benefit from Pier A.
