Smile NEW YORK | Waterside Pier (38th-41st Streets)



Waterside Pier renovation out, replacement planned
Mark Maurer February 14, 2014 11:00AM


Waterside Pier and Dan Garodnick

Quote:
The city’s Economic Development Corporation has opted to ditch its proposed $13 million renovation of the Waterside Pier, and instead scrap the pier altogether and construct a new one.

The decrepit and unused pier, between 38th and 41st streets along the East River, is slated for demolition later this year. A new 800-square-foot pier would open to the public about a year after that.

Economic Development Corporation vice president Cali Williams unveiled a new plan to the land use committee of Community Board 6 on Wednesday. The replacement pier would be raised 4 feet higher, have better storm protections, and feature one entry point and one exit point. City Council member Dan Garodnick donated $1.25 million to the city to cover storm protections.

The rehab project, which was to be funded by a lease-fulfillment payment from Consolidated Edison, sought to refurbish the pier’s structural components, and give way to a 34,000-square-foot park. Consolidated Edison used the pier for deliveries and parking.

Rockefeller University’s FDR Drive plan faces roadblock
Ambitious expansion proposal being reviewed by officials, skewered by residents
Mark Maurer February 20, 2014 11:05AM


Rendering of Rockefeller University platform and buildings

Quote:
Rockefeller University’s proposal to expand the campus by adding 160,000 square feet above FDR Drive has been met with opposition from locals.

Plans announced in July call for a two-story laboratory, amphitheater, two pavilions and a conference center, the Wall Street Journal reported. They would rest on a platform, anchored by 10 columns, about 20 feet above the highway between East 64th and East 68th streets. The city is in the process of reviewing the project. Residents have opposed it, arguing that the building will cast shadows on open space along the river and damage views of the Roosevelt Island Tramway and the Queensboro Bridge from the highway.

University officials said the expansion is necessary to compete with other schools in recruiting top students, as many of their facilities are in need of an upgrade. Rafael Viñoly Architects is handling design on the project.

City NIMBYism has to be a psychological disorder - it's the only explanation. I can understand someone living in a rural area opposing a massive factory opening up right in their back yard, but this is a city, specifically, New York City, specifically Manhattan. Do these people live in some green and open space I am not aware of?

LOL, people want to maintain and improve their quality of life/protect property value no matter where they are living and how bad it is already. It's a phony argument. People living in the city don't even think of rural america but only how to make their lives better. They ain't moving out of NYC to some suburb. They want it all and they'll fight tooth and nail for it. I mean, are native NYers not allowed to fight to have their quality of life improved without being told to move out to Hicksville, a place as alien to them probably as the moon? Without NIMBYS, NYC could be unlivable and undesirable, do you want Sao Paolo on Hudson or worse, Beijing? There has to be a balance to keep NYC an interesting place to invest in for the world. Can you imagine a Manhattan built from the bottom line only with no planning system?

No one says they dont have a right to complain I just find it hard to believe anyone wouldnt want a building that would cover an elevated expressway. Its not a huge building either.. just seems like they complain about everything which ironically reduces their effectiveness to get what they want. Easy to ignore people that hate everything!

Crain's New York:

Rockefeller Univ. gets nod to rise over the FDR
A key committee of the City Council gives the thumbs up for two buildings to rise on a platform to be built over the East Side thoroughfare. Full council approval is expected to follow.

BY JOE ANUTA
MAY 8, 2014 1:49 P.M.

Quote:
A City Council committee approved Rockefeller University's plan to construct two new buildings on a deck over Franklin D. Roosevelt Drive on Thursday—virtually ensuring that the rest of the Council would follow suit.

The school got the nod from the Committee on Land Use to construct a two-story research building and a one-story conference center on a platform above the thoroughfare, as well as another building on its existing campus, located on the east side of York Avenue, stretching from East 64th to East 68th streets. It had been seeking a number of permits to do so and sweetened the deal by agreeing to a number of community benefits hashed out with the Council ahead of the vote.

"[The project will] attract more top scientists to the East Side's hospital and biotech corridor," said City Councilman Benjamin Kallos (D-Manhattan), who represents the neighborhood and whose approval was essential for the project to gain approval from the council as a whole.

Before the plan was green lighted, though, Rockefeller not only agreed to provide an $8 million investment in the portion of the East River Esplanade that runs along the water adjacent to the campus, but also pledged a permanent maintenance fund for the public space, in addition to a noise barrier along the FDR, according to Mr. Kallos, who negotiated portions of the agreement.

The plan takes advantage of two, 1970s-era rulings that essentially gave Rockefeller University control of the airspace above the East Side traffic artery in order for it to expand, which it insists it desperately needs to do. However, the caveat has always been that the school would develop waterfront park space in exchange for the privilege.

While Mr. Kallos praised the plan and the people behind it on Thursday, the plan did hit several snags during the labyrinthine public-review process. Area residents cried foul over a number of issues including the proliferation of hospitals in the area popularly known as "bedpan alley."

"There was understandable concern in our already highly developed community about overcrowding in our neighborhood, and obstructions to east river parks," said Mr. Kallos. "However … Rockefeller University has demonstrated it is not only sensitive to these concerns, but will be a valuable partner in improving open space in our community."

In addition to the maintenance agreements, the school will also be upping the amount of public programming along the esplanade, paying $150,000 into a conservancy seeking to improve the waterfront space and may even contribute someone as a board member, according to Mr. Kallos.

The proposed platform would cap 927 linear feet of the FDR. It would follow the platform the university built in 1989 over the thoroughfare for the Rockefeller Research Center.

The new structures will house state-of-the-art research facilities of the sort that will allow it to remain competitive, according to a report from the Department of City Planning.

Proposal for aerial gondola linking Brooklyn to Manhattan
Daniel Levy, head of CityRealty, says his East River Skyway proposal will help alleviate congestion on overcrowded subway lines.






BY JOE ANUTA
SEPTEMBER 16, 2014


Quote:
The head of a New York City real estate data and listing site is set to propose Tuesday at the Massey Knakal Brooklyn Real Estate Summit an aerial gondola system that would run along the Brooklyn waterfront and into Manhattan.

"This would offer an incredible commute," said Daniel Levy, head of CityRealty, of his East River Skyway proposal. "You would get the best view you could imagine and a comfortable environment while avoiding the mayhem of the L train in the morning."

The system would be built in phases: the first running from the Brooklyn Navy Yard to Williamsburg, and then from Williamsburg to the Lower East Side. Subsequent phases would branch out to eventually connect Dumbo to the South Street Seaport, and Greenpoint, Brooklyn, and Long Island City, Queens, to Roosevelt Island. There, the network would meet up with the existing gondola route between Roosevelt Island and Manhattan.

New waterfront developments are on track to bring thousands of additional units to Brooklyn and Queens, and the aerial gondola system would help alleviate congestion on the subway lines, according to Mr. Levy. He estimates each phase would cost between $75 million and $125 million to build.

In the presentation, Mr. Levy will point to cities around the world such as Santiago, Chile, and Rio de Janeiro that are using gondolas in various stages of construction to ease congestion for commuters.

The idea was first floated around about seven years ago by former Deputy Mayor Daniel Doctoroff, who eyed a gondola system connecting Manhattan and Brooklyn to Governors Island.

The Brilliant Plan to Build a Gondola From Williamsburg to Manhattan


Adam Clark Estes


Quote:
Williamsburg has a problem. The neighborhood's become so popular so quickly that some fear that local infrastructure will buckle under the exploding population. Anybody who's ridden the L train lately knows this problem all too well. But that's nothing a few crazy people and a gondola can't solve.

The East River Skyway is a plan to connect Williamsburg and the Lower East Side with a gondola system that could shuttle over 5,000 people in either direction per hour. The trip would take just four minutes and would create zero emissions. Eventually, the plan calls for additional phases to add skyways between Midtown, through Queens and down to Williamsburg as well as a line that would stretch from Brooklyn Navy Yard, through Dumbo and over to the South Street Sea Port. Just imagine the views!

This gondola idea's starting to sound pretty good, huh? Well, here's the real kicker: It's super cheap, at least compared to expanding the train system. It can cost a city about $400 million per mile to run a subway line underground, according to Michael McDaniel, who's helping to design a gondola plan for Austin. By contrast, the aerial ropeways needed to run a gondola cost as little as $3 million to install per mile. Apartments in Williamsburg cost more than that these days.

Urban gondolas are actually becoming a bit of a trend. Austin is looking at installing a 35-mile-long gondola system called "The Wire" to connect its downtown. Portland, Oregon already built one back in 2007 to connect its downtown with a nearby university. Gondolas are also all the rage in Latin America, with an ever-expanding system in La Paz, Bolivia, systems in Caracas and Rio de Janeiro, a couple in Colombia, and one more planned for Santiago, Chile.

Oh and guess what? New York City already has a gondola. The plan for an East River Skyway is actually built on the success of the Roosevelt Island Tram, which the city renovated in 2010. Demand for that skyway will only increase as Cornell finishes building its satellite campus on Roosevelt Island in a few years.

It's unclear how far along the East River Skyway plan is, but it's important to highlight that it is just a plan. The project designers are currently building support from locals and surely enjoying some exposure in the press. Of course, this is a long game for them, as they're eying the Domino Sugar Factory project as an impetus to build the skyway. That project is decades away from completion.

By that point in time, scrambling for the L train will have certainly reached Snowpiercer levels of fierceness. Anyone who's waited for more than three overstuffed trains to pass by, unable to hold any more passengers, during their morning commute will tell you that this is not a pleasant problem. A skyway sounds like a delightful solution. Plus, what could be hipper than taking a gondola to work?

I've merged it with the east river developments thread. We'll see if it goes anywhere.

On an Island Under Vines, New York City Officials See a Future Park





By LISA W. FODERARO
OCT. 15, 2014


Quote:
It has been 70 years since North Brother Island, a 20-acre dollop of land in the East River, was used to quarantine New York City residents suffering from the great contagions of their day, like tuberculosis, scarlet fever and cholera. The hospital, which closed in the 1940s, was later used to house World War II veterans, then as a treatment center for drug addicts until 1963.

Tenacious vines, falling tree limbs and weather have since ravaged the two dozen buildings on the island, including the Tuberculosis Pavilion, the Nurse’s House, a church, a morgue and a coal house. Facades gape open. Copper-clad dormers droop. Trees emerge from third-story windows.

But on Wednesday, in an era highlighted by reinvention of the city’s forgotten infrastructure (think the High Line and Governors Island), three members of the City Council toured the island under spitting skies to see whether North Brother could be recast as public space.

“We want to start building the momentum and constituency for opening this up in some way,” said Councilman Mark D. Levine, the chairman of the parks committee. “I had seen pictures before, but nothing prepares you for the experience of seeing it in person.”

North Brother is one of over a dozen uninhabited islands under the jurisdiction of the city’s parks department, stretching from Hog Island in the Bronx down to Isle of Meadow off Staten Island. With the exception of Randalls Island, a thriving athletic complex, they are mostly frequented by nesting shorebirds like herons, egrets and ibises.

With state and city funds, the parks department this year began a project to replace invasive vines with native species, which will make the island a more appealing habitat for birds.

Given all of the demands on the parks department’s budget, the possibility of stabilizing the red brick buildings on North Brother — some in the Tudor Revival style — as a sort of Gotham equivalent to Pompeii is remote. Just paying for a comprehensive study of the island and its needs would cost many millions of dollars, parks officials say.

In addition to shoring up and cordoning off the buildings, which are mostly beyond repair, extensive work would need to be done on the grounds, which are covered with foot-snagging vines.

The allure of North Brother Island is plain, however. It is where Mary Mallon, better known as Typhoid Mary, was quarantined on and off for a quarter century, until her death in 1938. A healthy carrier of typhoid fever, she spread the disease to households where she was employed as a cook.

The island was also the scene of the P.S. General Slocum disaster in 1904, in which the passenger steamboat caught fire in the East River and ran aground. The accident claimed the lives of 1,021 passengers. Then there are the buildings themselves, the oldest dating from 1885. With their arched doorways, elaborate lintels and diamond-paned windows, they evoke another era.

After studying the ruins, the council members were undeterred. “You don’t need to invest $100 million to open it to the public,” Mr. Levine said. “You build a pier there and do it bit by bit.”

Councilman Fernando Cabrera, who represents the Bronx, had loftier ideas. “I would like to have Disneyland here,” he said. “We already have Governors Island. We need something different.”

Lawmaker Eyes Massive East River Esplanade Expansion

Gustavo Solis
February 5, 2015

Quote:
A state lawmaker wants to transform the East River Esplanade into a waterfront park that rivals any other in New York City.

But the first step is to keep the decaying infrastructure from falling into the East River.

State Assemblyman Robert Rodriguez released “A Tale of Two Rivers” report Wednesday. The report states that while waterfront parks downtown and on the west side have been developed into popular destinations, East Harlem has been consistently ignored.

“The walking and biking path is in disrepair, with sections of the thin path crumbling into the river below,” the report says. “Holes in the path have been boarded over with plywood, fencing has decayed, and many of the benches have been rendered unusable.”

In the report, Rodriguez outlines short-term and long-term improvements for the waterfront park between 60th and 125th streets.

“What we are proposing is so much more substantial and not just fixing but really enhancing the promenade and make it as attractive as Riverside Park or the Highline,” Rodriguez said. “I believe it has the potential to have that kind of effect.”

Immediate actions include renovating the 107th Street Pier, replacing the benches and helping revitalize the area with community programing and attracting local vendors.

Rodriguez then suggests setting up an East River Esplanade Trust — similar to the Hudson River Park Trust — to advocate for the development of the area, according to the report.

Among the long-term goals is building a deck over the FDR that turns the esplanade into a massive park that connects the waterfront to Thomas Jefferson Park.

Funding for the projects should come from a combination of public and private funds, according to the report.

Rodriguez’s study comes less than a year after the city’s executive budget allocated $35 million for the East River Esplanade.

When lobbying for the funds, Councilman Ben Kallos cited a 2013 study by the Parks Department that said the wooden pilings under the esplanade need to be replaced by concrete supports. The department estimated the project would cost $115 million over the next 10 years.

“We have an opportunity to do more than just fix the holes in the esplanade but change it dramatically,” the assemblyman said.

Skyway Proposal Gains Steam, Would Only Cost Riders $25/Month

MAY 4, 2016
DANA SCHULZ

Quote:
With public meetings about the impending L train shutdown beginning this week, much of the conversation is centered around alternate ways to shuttle people between downtown Manhattan and Brooklyn. One solution is the East River Skyway, an aerial gondola system that would run along the Brooklyn waterfront and into Manhattan, bringing commuters over the river in just 3.5 minutes. The proposal from Dan Levy, president and CEO of CityRealty, first surfaced in 2014, then referencing the Brooklyn development boom that will bring tens of thousands of new residential units to the borough in the coming years. But now with a possible years-long shutdown of the L, along with skyrocketing subway ridership, the Skyway is drumming up support from investors.

Levy told 6sqft, “We’ve completed some preliminary engineering and design work around the cars and the stations and how they could meld with their respective locations — and more broadly the city skyline. Given their high visibility we want to be context sensitive.” He also revealed that, although the project would cost up to $134 million (per estimate from engineers), an unlimited monthly pass would cost only $25.

Waterfront Park Opens at Greenpoint Landing

By Paul Stremple
August 7, 2018


Quote:
One of the key concessions made by developers eager to erect high-rise condominium towers along the North Brooklyn waterfront has been the inclusion of public green space along the water. This week, one such space at the northern end of Greenpoint opened up for use.

At the top end of the neighborhood, at the very end of Franklin Street, at Commercial, two rental buildings and one 30-story tower stand nearly complete.
