Bushwick Inlet Park Phase II Delayed Till Early 2013.

by Laura Treciokas on

Looks like we spoke too soon when Friends of Bushwick Inlet Park’s Facebook status was updated to:

Bushwick Inlet Park Phase 2 on track for completion end of 2012 according to latest information from OSANB. Pending DOB approvals that could get us the new building and rooftop @ North 9th-10th Street by March 2013. But FBIP community is still asking Bloomberg “Where’s the rest of our promised park?”

Turns out, NYC Parks is pushing back Phase Two of Bushwick Inlet Park completion to March 2013—three months later than we were told last week. HUGE BUMMER! A shred of good news we hope we can rely on… the shoreline in front of the soccer field could open any day! Just in time to enjoy a brisk holiday walk along the East River.

Laura is a new-ish addition to the Greenpoint community, moving here in 2007 with her husband Jonathan Fox and their Boston Terrier, Buster Brown. The family is recently joined by one Jasper Fox, last seen drooling on a non tree-lined stretch of sidewalk near you. Laura abandoned a life of glamour and excitement as a network news producer in Manhattan for a life of excitement and glamour in North Brooklyn, where she is renovating a home on Guernsey Street which dates back to 1872. Her involvement with community work began after she misunderstood her neighbor, Trina McKeever, believing that an invitation to join forces as Friends of Bushwick Inlet Park was the promise of a permanent boat slip on the East River. She soon discovered an outlet for her steady tiller hand, helping to set up the Community Committee for the Open Space Alliance for North Brooklyn and serving as the group’s first co-chair. Laura joined the board of GWAPP in 2012.
