This is the mound of fill dirt left over from the paving/unpaving project, which I've been calling Mount Liberty. The state plopped this unseemly mass on top of the landscaped grass a year ago; about two thirds of it was used to cover the ex-parking lot and the rest just sits there, with no sign of imminent removal. Overgrown with weeds and still fringed with black plastic and orange security webbing, this hump is bigger than it looks in the photo; it's about twenty feet high, and when you climb on top of it you have a great view of New York Harbor. Maybe the state considers it an amenity now--or maybe they're just too broke to move it.
