Looks like the little park that could...couldn't. The Williamsburg waterfront park, dubbed East River Park, opened just last year, but now the NY Post is saying it "will be shut for the winter as part of Gov. Paterson's sweeping budget cuts." While the closure will only be from January to March (clearly not the time to be sitting on the waterfront anyway), the NYC Park Advocates group noted, "Closing a park is unheard of in modern times." Perhaps when it makes its triumphant comeback it will have better landscaping, allow pets and extend hours (currently it's opened from 10 a.m. to dusk).
