Yesterday, we noted progress on East River State Park in Williamsburg. Today, we pass on word that New York City is "pursuing acquisition" of several large parcels of land to the north for another park. This includes a large parking lot next door and the huge Citistorage records storage warehouse on Kent Avenue between North 10th and North 11th streets. Here's the million dollar question: Will the city convert the Sanitation Garage immediately to the north to park use too? If not, this possible future green space is going to be a very funky place, and not because of the vibe. Especially on hot summer days like these.
