SQUADRON, LEVIN STATEMENT ON ONGOING CLOSURE OF INDIA STREET PIER

BROOKLYN – Today, State Senator Daniel Squadron and Councilmember Steve Levin released the following statement regarding the ongoing closure of the India Street pier:

“With two weeks before the G train’s summer shutdown, we still haven’t received a firm date on when the India Street pier will be reopened. This is a transportation lifeline for Greenpointers and northern Brooklynites, especially with the looming G train shutdown. Though the EDC has worked with us to create a shuttle service, the ferry landing has not been available for use since February 13 of this year.

We acknowledge the effort and energy required to safely reopen the pier from EDC and Red Sky, but the lack of a confirmed date is simply unacceptable. The India Street pier must be reopened before July 26th, and we ask that EDC commit today to a date for a safe reopening.”
