There’s nothing more serene in Long Island City than walking up Gantry Park’s walkway on a lazy Sunday afternoon…particularly around the new area, adjacent to the Pepsi Cola sign. It even smells like a new park!
But stroll up north past the sign, all the way to the end where it’s still closed off, and you’ll notice a massive (like 10 ft. wide) gaping hole in the middle of the walkway. Our intense curiosity has forced us to dig deep (sorry for the pun) and find out something absolutely amazing.
According to our inside-source the hole will house a viewing station for the East River!He says: ”This hole is to allow visitors to the park to view the river flowing below. I believe it is to be encircled with a fence or some railing and there must be some glass in there.”
There’s no doubt that very soon this hole alone will be the best reason to live in Long Island City.
