New, 1 comment

HARLEM?It looks like it's time to ratchet up the pressure to approve the rezoning of 125th Street. Today, Community Board 11 sent out a press release announcing a $1.4 million deal reached in mid-March with Vornado over its Harlem Park building that will include Major League Baseball's cable network as a tenant. The money will be divvied up for things like job training and streetscape improvements. The rezoning got conditional support from Community Boards 9 & 11 and conditional disapproval from Community Board 10. Per an email from Community Board 11, which approved the deal with Vornado: "The development team was looking for community support for an amendment to the New York City Department of City Planning’s 125th Street Corridor Rezoning Plan."

IN THE PARKS?In another sign that Spring is here, tomorrow is the official opening day for ballfields in parks around the city. Also, for those keeping track, cricket fields also open tomorrow. Here are some other opening days: lawn bowling & croquet fields on April 26, beaches on May 24 and pools on June 27. [CurbedWire Inbox]
