Mayoral Control....of State run Parks???

It was announced today that the mayor has made proposals for the city to take over two park projects that have either been entirely or partially run by the State up until now. One is just to the North of our neighborhood - Brooklyn Bridge Park, and the other is to the West - Governor's Island. Both have potential to be easily accessible to our neighborhood within the next few years, if everything (i.e. ferry or water taxi service) goes right, and could be a big force in providing our area with an influx of visitors, boosting the local economy.
