East Side Falling Into River

"New Yorkers will be waiting another year for East River Park to be complete — and maybe more if a state agency succeeds in halting the project. The Department of Environmental Conservation is worried that workers repairing the East River bulkhead are allowing the shoreline to erode into the water, so D.E.C. tried to revoke the construction permit, D.E.C. spokesperson Arturo Garcia-Costas said. D.E.C. first noticed erosion problems last year and fined the city and contractor Pile Foundation Construction Company $200,000, but the problems continued, Garcia-Costas said in an e-mail to The Villager."
