Bad News for Battery Park

The Battery Park City Authority had determined that the Hurricane Sandy damage to artificial turf ballfields is so bad that they can not be repaired. Instead, they need to be completely replaced. This will likely be a huge headache for all involved, as the transfer from really grass to artificial cost $4.1 million and took six months?and that was only after two years of planning and prep. This time will probably suck even more since the ruined fields have to be demolished first. [Broadsheet Daily]
