As work on Brooklyn Bridge Park continues apace, State Senator Daniel Squadron has renewed his call for property taxes, not condos, to be used to finance the park. In Squadron's plan, the property tax revenues for the area will go up because of rezonings and the park itself (nifty how that works!). As part of his park maximization plan, Squadron also wants an ice-skating rink, the return of the floating barge pool, a rec center, a water-taxi, and a "winter bubble structure" for year-round fun.
