MAS Reiterates Its Support for Pier55

Re: Civic Group Sues to Halt Hudson River Park Backed by Barry Diller [New York Times, June 12, 2015]

“MAS was proud to testify in support of Pier55 during its extensive public hearing and environmental review process this winter, and we remain strong supporters of the project.

From Brooklyn Bridge Park to the High Line, public/private partnerships have proven to be an indispensable tool for transforming New York’s untapped public spaces. The fact is, Pier 54 is crumbling and neither the State nor the City has the resources or the will to safely repair it.

To oppose this project is to favor inertia over action, caution tape over ribbon-cuttings. Pier55 was conceived in the spirit of cooperation and it deserves the same treatment, even from its detractors.”

-Margaret Newman, Executive Director, Municipal Art Society of New York
