When demolition of East River Park starts in 2020, the city should have alternate spaces for park users–called “mitigation.” There is no mitigation planned for these park users.
The mitigation that has been promised is pitiful, and what is planned is not likely to be ready when the bulldozers tear apart East River Park.
That is one reason we are suing. We are asking New York State to provide conditions and oversight before our park can be demolished. To find out more about the lawsuit, visit https://eastriverparkaction.org/lawsuit/
