Brooklyn Councilman David Greenfield (D-44th) says it took him seven and a half years to get the city to rehabilitate the once dilapidated Gravesend Park, where he played as a kid.
But Greenfield is upset about the cost of the new bathrooms. The price tag for the 400 square feet of space was nearly $2 million, and there’s absolutely nothing unique about it.
“Because we’re so flush with funds in New York City, we’re also flushing some funds down the toilet,” he told CBS2.
There are no gold plated fixtures — only stainless steel.
“I’m frustrated that we are essentially wasting taxpayer money,” Greenfield said. “You can build a complete house in six months for one million dollars.”
At around $5,000 per square foot, it’s literally cheaper to buy the most expensive apartment in Trump Tower.
Greenfield puts the blame squarely on City Hall, with Mayor Bill de Blasio presiding. Read more at CBS.
