Setting the Gate:
New 45-ton Floodgate in Asser Levy Park, New York City
Work on our photography contract with they city’s 1.5-billion East Side Coastal Resiliency Project continues, as a new 45-ton, nearly 80-foot long gate at Asser Levy Park is installed.
The massive gate was trucked in on a flatbed, and raised into position in front of the gorgeous bath house, opened in 1908 to alleviate sanitary problems in the city. Many New Yorkers, especially immigrants living in overcrowded tenements, had no place to bathe.
The floodgate will close when the city is forecasted to receive major surges of ocean water from coastal storms.
The gate rolls on slowly-moving wheels, taking a full five minutes lock into place and block off the southern portion of the park, which opens onto East 23rd Street, from potential flooding.
Asser Levy Park is the first of five parks being redesigned or rebuilt for the $1.5 billion East Side Coastal Resiliency project, which is set to provide flood protection for nearly 100,000 area residents.
