A quick look at the under-renovation Joseph C. Sauer Park
Renovation work started the week of Oct. 21 here at Joseph C. Sauer Park on 12th Street between Avenue A and Avenue B.
The Parks website lists construction as 2 percent complete... here's a look at 2 percent in the books...
The upgrades include new equipment, seating areas and plantings. The $4-million renovations — part of Mayor de Blasio’s Community Parks Initiative — have a completion date of October 2020, per the Park's website.
The schematic on the Parks website still shows a 4-foot fence along 12th Street...
On Oct. 18, following a petition drive and community concern over safety issues, local Assemblymember Harvey Epstein and City Councilmember Carlina Rivera announced a deal with the city that would keep the fence outside the Park at 8 feet once it reopens.
