Unfortunately, the green peace people are fighting the sale. There are two issues. There are an endangered species of sludge-eating catfish in the creek that borders the southern end of the yard. This alone would block devepment of the area. To compound the problems, there is a home-built submarine in that creek that has recently been declared a historic site by the landmarks preservation committee of the city of NY. The court battles were projected to last through the first half of the 21st century so the developer said "screw it" and took his plans to New Jersey.
