Don't you think some investor would be building that already if there was a demand for that at the price-point needed for developers to make a profit?
Just ideas for the future of the park, not saying that the gov't should subside building residential buildings, just that future apartment development should be steered in those parcels. It would make for a more active 24 hour spot.

I particularly like the little river that runs down the side of the park over the rock waterfalls
That's one of my favorites too because its not so crowded. I would like the park to create a wading pool at the bottom for people to put their feet in and cool off. Maybe some fish in the creek so kids and adults can rent poles and practice catch-and-release.

That whole Times Square South building is supposed to be going in a block or two down the street -- if that happens, it may provide for a little more draw to the park. Not sure how much though...

I doubt they'd do this because the water source for the water is probably municipal. To make it safe for fish, you'd have to dechlorinate all the water, which would also make it less safe for people to wade in.

Not to mention that catch and release in a body of water that small is pretty cruel to the fish. How many times can they have hooks pulled out of their mouths before the wounds get infected and they die?

Plus, the area would be littered with rusty hooks all over the ground and in the wading pools. Terrible idea for this park, although it could work well in a larger park with a good sized body of water.
