City promises $75M for Bushwick Inlet Park, including long-delayed demolition of CitiStorage site


The city has allocated a bundle of money toward the fabled completion of Bushwick Inlet Park, promising $75 million for the development of the CitiStorage site on Kent Avenue.

“A promise was made to this community a long time ago for this park, and the city of New York did not keep the promise,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said Monday. “It was before my time, but people gathered, and people organized, and I want to thank you for that, because you were right. That a promise was made and it needed to be kept.”
