Residents, Pols Irked Over Slow Parks Progress

The city promised to build three parks — 28-acre Bushwick Inlet Park, Barge Park, and a park on Commercial St. in Greenpoint — as part of a 2005 waterfront rezoning to allow housing towers. Only a 7-acre chunk of Bushwick Inlet Park with a soccer field has opened.

The City Council’s Parks and Waterfront committees will be holding a hearing on the 2005 rezoning and its unkept promises.
