Here was the scene a short time ago in Seward Park. Crews are getting started on the long-awaited resurfacing of the basketball courts.
At a recent community board meeting, Parks Department officials said the project was set to begin on Monday. A couple of days ago, we noted that nothing appeared to be happening. TLD reader Aan LeNoble pointed out to us yesterday afternoon that construction crews had finally arrived. They were back out in the park this morning, putting up a chain-link fence around the courts.
City Council member Margaret Chin allocated $600,000 for the resurfacing three years ago. The project is expected to take about three months.
