On the Waterfront

On October 20, Gossips shared the news that A. Colarusso & Son, the new owners of what has in the past often been called the "deep water dock," had filed an application with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation to "stabilize approximately 170 feet of eroded Hudson River shoreline with large rock rip-rap" and to "replace approximately 75 feet of deteriorated concrete bulkhead within a lateral side berth with new steel bulkhead that will be placed in the same location as the existing structure."

There are questions of ownership surrounding the dock that go back to the 19th century, and the South Bay Task Force has requested an extension of the public comment period, which is currently scheduled to end on Friday, November 5, in order to explore them. Timothy O'Connor explains the situation on "Hudson's Waterfront in Colarusso's Care: Extend the Public Comment Period."

  1. Many thanks, Gossips.

    And thanks to those who did most of the original research, including Don C., and the Valley Alliance.
