Streetsblog New York City » Hudson River Park Trust’s Pier 57 Will Add to Car/Bike Greenway Conflicts

"Berthet said that the way the Hudson River Park Trust has used projects with on-site parking to support the park creates problems for park users. "The more you build, the more you're going to need vehicular crossings," she said. "The more we build on those piers, the more we are making the greenway and the park unusable.""

Hmm. You'd almost think that requiring certain parks (but not most) to be self-supporting might not be a great policy. Cough, Brooklyn Bridge Park, cough, cough. 

Shoehorning condos and auto-dependent uses into parks is not a great idea.
