The NorthEast section of the Park (above, Tuesday afternoon) is scheduled for construction next. The NE corner of the Park is quite large now and is scheduled to be significantly reduced (into a more quaint “Plaza”) and all the picnic tables removed. Apparently, the NYC Parks Department doesn’t want picnic tables in the, uh, Park.
