And look, a waterfront park plan with recreation, without housing, and with the land being acquired by the Parks Department. What do they know in Williamsburg that we don't?

It is ironic, isn't it? Cobble Hill and DUMBO get dumped on with a wall of housing for a "park" that isn't (they call it a project now). No year round recreation, no pool, no ice rink, no field house - a wetlands and tidal pools is what we get over here in Cobble Hill. And housing - lots and lots of housing - 1250 units to be exact. I hope the Cobble Hill Association will continue to press for a true park that is open, welcoming and can be enjoyed by all (and not a "park" for those who live in it).
