Restaurants, music, noise until 3 am?
The lawsuits make you wonder why there are lawsuits if the opposing party is winning. It seems to make more sense to file the suit only after the election. What if the outcome is that the "no" vote wins, what was the point of the lawsuit then?
As for the pro-waterfront forces, they put their feet in their mouth every time they talk. Now they are making the condo circuit and their push now to the condo-dwellers who live only feet from the project is that there will be three restaurants and bars right across the street, imagine all that live music and all those people and at one meeting, Commissioner Sarnoff brought up the idea of a band shell next door, why that? Because now they are deflecting the talk from the waterfront mess to the Regatta Park next door, only the park IS NOT on the ballot. The park is happening. The only thing on the ballot is the Scotty's/Chart property. You are not voting for a new park, the new park is happening.
This seemed to get the condo owners thinking, do they want all that traffic and noise? All they need to do is ask the people at The Cloisters who live next to Peacock Park how they like all that activity right next door.
I live in the North Grove next to Mercy Hospital, which is a buffer between Vizcaya and me, only every night, especially now that the season is starting, we hear everything that goes on at Vizcaya during events. We hear music, dancing and even people giving speeches from weddings and events, so clearly, as if it was in our living rooms. The water acoustics do this, the sound travels on the bay and magnifies it especially at night. This will be the effect at the new Grove Bay project, too. Every night, with hundreds of people there until 3 am, the music and noise of people will be non-stop.
The project needs to be toned down and fit in with the waterfront.
