Keeping a watchful eye on the waterfront

Between Java & Kent

A few years back, the City's Economic Development Corporation stablized the East River bulkhead between Java and Kent Streets in Greenpoint. For at least two years, the public had access to this stretch of the waterfront between Kent and Java.

But over the winter of '04-'05 the property owner fenced off the portion of the waterfront accessible from Java St and closed the gate on Kent St. This has reduced by 3/4 the amount of space available to the public for fishing, suntanning, and contemplation.

Hopefully this is not a sign of how the waterfront will be treated in between now and when the private-public shorewalk is built.
