What a beautiful day if only we had a field to play on

New York is experiencing picture perfect beautiful day: 73 degrees, low humidity, bright blue sky. However, the luxurious green grass playing field, a rarity for urban kids that has cost at least $200,000 of taxpayer money, remains locked up behind a hideous construction fence, being held hostage by the DOT until the BPCA assumes control. Note the lost sports balls kicked over the fence that the children cannot access.

This is a disgrace that falls squarely on the shoulders of BPCA’s CEO Gayle Horwitz [(212) 417-2000 gayle.horwitz@batteryparkcity.org], Tess Huxley, and the DOT’s Region 11 Director Phillip Eng [(718) 482-4526 peng@dot.state.ny.us].

    Great JOb BatteryParkTv!!! SHAMEFUL , JUST SHAMEFUL. THat high school will destroy it starting in Sept. Look at the basketball courts. We had the nets replaced already 1x. Now, you have a BENT rim, missing net! Skateboarders are all over the granite/limestone causing damage. Maybe they would of been on the field instead of skating and destroying.
