Ferry Point

October 16, 2013

Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and Parks Commissioner Veronica M. White joined Jack Nicklaus and Donald J. Trump to announce the completion of the last hole of the Jack Nicklaus Signature, PGA tournament-quality Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point Park. The course is sited on 192 acres at the foot of the Whitestone Bridge in the Throgs Neck section of the Bronx. It is constructed on a former municipal landfill and reflects the City’s continuing commitment to remediate former brownfields and expand the public’s access to the waterfront. This also marks the completion of a complex decommissioning project that has been on the docket for more than 60 years, and fulfillment of a request first made by the local community more than 30 years ago. The Mayor was also joined at the event by Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr., Council Member James Vacca, State Senator Jeffrey Klein, Assembly Member Michael Benedetto, former Council Member Madeline Provenzano, and members of Bronx Community Board 10.
