In mid-March, Bloomberg et al commemorated the first part of the Brooklyn Heights new park known as Brooklyn Bridge Park. Formerly a bunch of abanoned docks and warehouses, this land that borders the last part of the East River is now verdant and hiply designed. The first part, Pier 1, is open to the public. Other adjacent piers are being converted and should be open by summer. Read more about the plans here.

The EPA did the right thing, naming the polluted Gowanus a SuperFund site. According to this NYT article, the cleanup could take 10-12 years and cost $300-500 million. Bloomberg and company were very disappointed, no doubt upset about the prospects for crony real estate development. Next up should be the Superfund labeling of the terrible oil spill under Greenpoint, one of the worst domestic oil spills (even bigger than the Exxon Valdez).

One of my last evenings at ACA, I made a little movie of my bike ride to Turnbull Bay. The music is a beautiful sentimental excerpt from Gorecki's London Symphony.
