Demonstrators gathered next to the Battery Park City ball fields on Thurs., Oct. 18 called for the B.P.C.A. to work out a new contract with Asphalt Green to preserve community access to the neighborhood ball fields.
BY TERESE LOEB KREUZER | More than a year later than planned, a 52,000-square-foot community center may soon be opening in Battery Park City under the management of Asphalt Green. The opening was delayed in part by permitting problems but largely by a contract inked early in 2009 during the Battery Park City Authority administration of chairman James Gill and president James Cavanaugh that subsequent B.P.C.A. management found unacceptable.
