In case you were wondering… “What is up with those broken down sidewalks that line Washington Square Park? Weren’t they supposed to – at least – be completed by this summer 2013?”
Well, the answer is YES. However, you’ll have to wait another year – work is now not scheduled to begin until next Summer 2014, six and a half years after redesign construction began in late 2007. This information was revealed at Community Board 2’s Parks Committee meeting earlier this month by Park Administrator Sarah Neilson. It’s a bit strange how the things that were most important to park users (the sidewalks and the bathrooms — more on those next) are all being done last. Watch your step.
