Petrosino Park Update

Thanks to a tip from a resident of Cleveland Place, we now have an update on Petrosino Park, which has been under construction for many months.
A number of you have asked about the timetable for the renovation to be finished and why there has been quite a stretch now during which construction seems to have stopped, so I spoke today to Michaelangelo Construction, and Mr. Benedetti explained that with the added expansion it became necessary to order supplemental granite, which comes from China. He said that as soon as that granite arrives, the remainder of the work should go quickly. The projected finish date is now around the time of the San Gennaro Feast (September, if I’m not misremembering), but he thinks the work should be completed before then.
Needless to say, many in the neighborhood are upset that the park will not open until summer ends.
