Committee calls waterfront property in the Bronx unappreciated, underutilized

There are six miles of waterfront property in Hunts Point, but Bronx residents only have access to two miles of it. Now, City Council members are calling for a change. The 2002 Waterfront Inventory bill reports that waterfront property in the Bronx is being wasted. Members of the City Council's Waterfronts Committee agree, they describe the property as unappreciated and underutilized. The report criticizes the Hunts Point Jail barge for taking up prime real estate and calls the Hunts Point Marine Transfer Station an eyesore. The report says the community has called for commercial space at the transfer station for the past eight years, but it still sits unused.
