Towns and Weiner Lead Effort To Rehab Busy Park
CANARSIE — In what will be the first step towards transforming the historic Canarsie Pier, U.S. Rep. Edolphus “Ed” Towns (D-Brooklyn), chairman of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform; Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-Queens and Brooklyn), and a National Park Service representative announced a plan to revitalize the Brooklyn landmark by attracting vendors to propose plans for the site’s use.
At the urging of both Towns and Weiner, NPS recently released a Request for Expression of Interest (RFEI) for applicants to submit plans for the creation of a new restaurant. The current dilapidated building, formerly a restaurant called Abbracciamento on the Pier, has been unused since 2002.
