Years ago, the BPC ice rink was located on the ballfields, was almost the size of a football field, and families from Tribeca and FiDi enjoyed it. When that contactor turned out to be dubious, the BPCA relocated the ice rink to the Wagner Park small field, way out of the way, and few people used it.
Now, the Canadian and off-shore real estate conglomerate doing business as a variety of names that sound like Brookfield has hijacked the rink as their own and set it up in a small corner of the esplanade.
Brookfield (fill in the blank as the second part because no one really knows what to call this company) is the biggest taxpayer in BPC and gets its way with virtually anything. They are poised to take over the marina as well. Meanwhile, the appoint, unelected, schmucks who run the BPCA allow this to happen.
