In the News: Downtown Boathouse Delayed

••• “Downtown Boathouse […] was just informed by Hudson River Park Trust ‘that there will be a delay in the Certificate of Occupancy for Pier 26, and that the most realistic start date for us at Pier 26 is now June 1st,’ said Graeme Birchall,  president of the Downtown Boathouse. ‘In order to provide free kayaking to Downtown residents in the interim, we will repair our old dock at Pier 40, install the ramp, and open there on May 17.'” —Downtown Post NYC (photo of Pier 96 courtesy Downtown Boathouse)

••• Stop the presses! Trees were being planted near Pier 26. —Downtown Express
