Yesterday, the Mayor released Vision 2020, a comprehensive plan for New York’s waterfront. They also released a ‘Waterfront Action Agenda,’basically outlining their plans for the next three years. This includes the intent to:
Continue the phased acquisition, remediation, and development of the new Bushwick Inlet Park.
More interestingly, the Greenpoint Monitor Museum seems to factor into their longer-term plans:
Explore opportunities for inclusion of a museum commemorating the USS Monitor.
(Page 144, Vision 202 Plan)
I wonder if any headway has been made between the Monitor People and the City – last I heard, they were still at odds regarding an appropriate commemoration of the Monitor’s history.
The entire comprehensive waterfront plan can be downloaded from the Department of City Planning’s Website.
