i believe some on this list are interested in the future of pier 40 at
west houston street on the hudson.
it is the home of the village community boathouse, ny kayak company,
the interim home of one of the downtown boathouse locations, not to
mention the many non-boating uses currently there.
as has been the case for so long, discussions about its redevelopment
are ongoing, made more critical by Hudson River Park's financial
problems (in large part a reflection of City and State $ issues) and
more recently by the effects of last year's great storm and its surge.
i thought this public meeting, sponsored by community board 2 of
manhattan, might be of interest:

Dear Neighbor:

Just a reminder that Community Board 2 (Manhattan) will be hosting a
Pier 40 Forum this Thursday, February 28th, at the Saatchi & Saatchi
Building, located at 375 Hudson Street (between West Houston & King
Streets).  The Forum will begin at 6:30 p.m.(click here to download
flyer)  There will be presentations regarding a number of
income-generating proposals for Pier 40 and comments by many of our
elected officials.  If time allows, there will be a limited question
and answer period.   We hope you can attend.


Sincerely,

David Gruber
Chair
Community Board No. 2, Manhattan
Bob Gormley
District Manager
