Hudson River Park Watch

New, 8 comments

Governor Cuomo signed into law yesterday a bill that will allow the financially floundering Hudson River Park to sell its air rights to developers in adjacent neighborhoods. Preservationists and residents are concerned about what this means for historic areas like the West Village and Tribeca, but they know this is just the beginning and the plan of the park Trust could change. With a new city administration taking charge in January, the Trust's board will see eight new members. Plus, every possible air rights sale will have to go through the lengthy public review process.
