SCHEDULED FOR CHANGE--This section of the city's waterfront, as seen from Promenade Hill, is expected to change considerably in the weeks ahead. The brick structure at the left, presently the DPW garage, and the remaining fishing shacks and docking facilities will be razed to make way for the long awaited Hudson Boat Launch Site. The large structure at the water's edge is the Hudson Power Boat Association, which will remain intact. Assemblyman Clarence D. Lane said a call for bids will be issued in two weeks with actual construction getting underway in six weeks. The Assemblyman said the launch site will be built at a cost in excess of the former $130,000 proposed and will be one of the more elaborate launch sites in New York State.When the new boat launch was dedicated more than a year later in August 1968, Mayor Samuel Wheeler reportedly declared that he wanted "fishing facilities" to be created at the site.
