A few months back we heard from a reliable source that the north part of Gantry State Park was “definitely” going to open by Memorial Day. Unfortunately our source never mentioned which year because if you take a stroll out there, the fence is still up. I think we can all agree that we are quite anxious to get access to the Pepsi Cola sign (kids, please don’t throw stuff at it!), but more importantly access to the enormous lawn and magnificent view of the Queensboro Bridge (sorry, we are still refusing to call it the Ed Koch Bridge).
As the building developers put their final touches to the buildings (apparently that’s why it’s not open yet) we hope we’ll get access to this new section before the end of June (of THIS year, please).
In the meantime, I say we take bets on when it’s opening up. Check out this week’s Quick Poll!
