One reader believes this setup will also render the ping-pong table useless [Updated: there looks to be enough room between the trailer and the table for matches] ... As previously reported, the field house and the space behind it — dubbed the Slocum area as it includes the Slocum Memorial Fountain — will be closed during this time. In addition, the Tompkins Square mini pool will be out of commission for two consecutive summers.
The Parks Department website lists a September 2024 competition date for the $5.6-million project (PDF here), which will:
• Upgrade existing restrooms to code
• Upgrade Parks and maintenance and operations space
• Add first aid and lifeguard locker room spaces in the building
• Reconstruct interiors
• Clean and partially repoint exterior brick
Porta potties are expected on the scene at some point... as the Park bathrooms will be closed. (Get your stall selfies quickly!).
To be continued for sure...
we deserve better than this. there's no reason this should take so long to complete, and to live with this eyesore in the middle of the path for 18 months!? there has to be a better solution.
What about the bath room s
I am glad for the improvements but the length of time this is allegedly going to take is absurd. It would be nice if just once a renovation of a public area in NYC didn't take a thousand years. Pathetic. And thanks for ruining the ping pong area, dicks!
Ha! I guessed this WAS the new bathrooms when I first approached.
18 months for that? FOH
I took my dog to the dog run around 1pm and the dogs were terrified by the noise from jackhammers. I certainly hope this won't be an on-going issue as it will render the run useless for dogs who are sensitive to noise.
People of Earth, your attention, please. This is Prostetnic Vogon Jeltz of the Galactic Hyperspace Planning Council. As you will no doubt be aware, the plans for development of the outlying regions of the Galaxy require the building of a hyperspatial express route through your star system. And regrettably, your planet is one of those scheduled for demolition. The process will take slightly less than two of your Earth minutes. Thank you. ... There’s no point in acting surprised about it. All the planning charts and demolition orders have been on display at your local planning department in Alpha Centauri for 50 of your Earth years, so you’ve had plenty of time to lodge any formal complaint and it’s far too late to start making a fuss about it now. ... What do you mean you’ve never been to Alpha Centauri? Oh, for heaven’s sake, mankind, it’s only four light years away, you know. I’m sorry, but if you can’t be bothered to take an interest in local affairs, that’s your own lookout. Energize the demolition beams.
I forgot it was there
