The New NEW Governors Island Getting $150 Million

New, 11 comments

Mayor Bloomberg wants to fire 6,000 teachers due to budget cutbacks but he has no problem handing Governors Island $150 million for some new hammocks. Let's hop in the Curbed Time Machine and head back to April 2010, when new renderings of the island's transformation into a year-round paradise were revealed. Part of that dream will become a reality by 2013, DNAinfo reports, including the Hammock Grove (above) and a pair of sports fields. In all, nearly two dozen acres in the middle of the island will be renovated, but other parts of the project still need funding. Who else can we fire?
