Last month, A. Colarusso & Son submitted an application to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation to stabilize the shoreline and replace the bulkhead at what is sometimes known as the "deep water dock." Timothy O'Connor, of the South Bay Task Force, predicts that what is proposed would "permanently and profoundly alter a shore of the Hudson River in the City's South Bay." Today, on imby.com, he provides evidence that the land beneath the bulkhead Colarusso proposes to replace does not belong to them but instead belongs to the State of New York. He also makes an appeal to everyone to request an extension to the public comment period for the project, which is now scheduled to end on Friday, November 5: "Submit a public comment: The Colarusso bulkhead is State-owned."
