Urge New Hudson River Park Trust chair to reject “Vegas-on-the-Hudson”

This summer, the Pier 40 Working Group of the Hudson River Park Advisory Board voted overwhelmingly to reject Related Companies’ plan for a huge “Vegas-on-the-Hudson” style development on Pier 40. This summer Governor Spitzer also appointed Diana Taylor as the new Chair of the Board of the Hudson River Park Trust, the body which, along with the City Planning Commission and the City Council, must ultimately approve this proposal in order for it to become a reality. A decision by the Hudson River Park Board on the Pier 40 is expected as early as this fall. GVSHP recently wrote to the new Trust Chair Diana Taylor to welcome her to her new position, and to strongly urge her to reject the Related Companies’ mega-development plan for Pier 40, which we believe would have such a negative impact (see here).

Please join us in urging Chair Taylor to do right by our pier, our park, and our neighborhoods.
