Despite a Battery Park City Authority (BPCA) town hall meeting in May whereby residents voiced numerous gripes with the LeFrak corporation, very little has been accomplished with Gateway Plaza. One problem that impacts all of Battery Park City is the filthy sidewalk in front of the ice cream shop on South End Avenue. Particularly in the summer months, the stench of dog urine is unhealthy and unbearable because LeFrak does not power wash the sidewalk as they should.

On August 8th, BatteryPark.TV was walking by the ice cream shop and decided to do something about the problem. Within an hour of speaking with the Gateway Plaza management office, a cleaning crew arrived to power wash the street. The man in charge explained that he had been injured and was unable to wash the sidewalk for more than four months.

Residents should feel free to contact BP.TV if this power washing is not performed several times a week. They can also contact the BPCA at
