New Williamsburg Park's Opening Day!

Park One

The new state park in Williamsburg opened yesterday. We stopped in yesterday evening, about fifteen minutes before the staff closed the gates a little after 7:30, and we've got to say that although it's a bit rustic as parks go, it is absolutely wonderful to finally have that kind of legitimate waterfront access in Williamsburg. The park's supervisor explained that once staff is added, the park will be open from 8AM until dusk, although it's unclear when that will happen and whether it will be a seven-day-a-week schedule. He said that staffers had been working long hours to get the park ready for its debut. For now, the park is open from 10AM-8PM. To judge by the turnout and happy vibe among visitors, it will be a very popular place. For more info on the opening check out Williamsburg blogger INSIJS, who was there at the opening bell. Oh, and the park supervisor said that barbecuing is allowed on the concrete parts of the park. The park will be open on Memorial Day.

Hey, it's funny how Williamsburg/Greenpoint only refers to things in Greenpoint that Williamsburg trys to claim as theirs. When it's in Williamsburg, the Greenpoint part just sort of disappears.

I think we should take northern Brooklyn and all of Manhattan below 96th and make a new borough.

We'll call it 'Fuckhead'

Fuckhead County

Borough of Fuckhead, NYC.

Sounds nice.

I am aware that women are allowed to lay topless at New York State parks. Is it the same for NYS parks located in NYC?
