End-of-summer progress report on Pier 40
GVSHP and a wide array of community groups have opposed plans by Related Companies for an enormous “Vegas-on-the-Hudson” style development on Pier 40 at Clarkson Street. In May, we helped in generating more than 1,500 residents who turned out to oppose the plan at a public hearing. Now the Pier 40 Working Group of the Hudson River Park Trust Advisory Council, with a near-unanimous vote, has called for rejection of this proposal (see here). While ultimately the Hudson River Park Trust will make this decision, the Working Group’s recommendation is expected to carry considerable weight with the Trust, which is expected to reconvene in the fall to review the proposals.
