McCarren Park Tennis Bubble Plans Aired


New York Shitty documented the Park Department’s presentation at Community Board 1 this week about the proposal to have a bubble on top of the McCarren Park tennis courts during the off-season. The show-and-tell comes in advance of an RFP being issued for the project. As it stands now, the idea is to award operation of the bubble to a concessionaire for a 15-year period; the city would continue to run the courts as usual during the outdoor season. A Parks rep says that while he can’t say exactly what the fees would be for using the facility, “$40 to $45 an hour” would be a “pretty typical” range for Brooklyn.
