The roller hockey rink at Riverside Park has a new element of controversy: a soon-to-be-installed outhouse that will face the Village on the Cannon (VOC) condos. (See my original spoof-with-truth blog post for background.)
I gave the facility a test-run on Thursday morning. Reading material was absent but cell phone reception was quite good.
It seems to me that the three-walled shell could be be turned around so that the portable toilet, when it arrives, would face the rink.
In a related development, the lights surrounding the rink have been turned on recently for late-night roller hockey and soccer activity. That evidently violates the agreement between residents of VOC and the Park & Rec Advisory Board (PRAB). A resident informed me yesterday that acting on a police request, city workers have bolted shut the lighting switch box.
