City and State both want money from BPCA
Could stall Battery Park City building projects and negatively impact services

A series of forces are converging that may significantly affect the financial outlook for the Battery Park City Authority (BPCA) in years to come, and thus possibly impact quality of life and services in the community.

Esplanade workThe Paterson administration wants the BPCA to give it $20 million from funds on hand, and borrow another $250 million (which would also be handed over to the State) to help close Albany's budget gap. The City, which has first claim on BPCA revenue and is facing budget shortfalls of its own, is quietly negotiating with the State government, and may end up demanding a similar disbursement before it signs off on such a move. At the same time, the BPCA has spent most of its reserve for ongoing capital projects, such as the seawall repair along the Esplanade and construction of the new community center on North End Avenue, along with upcoming ventures, such as the rehabilitation of Pier A, and will have to borrow some $100 million in the near future to continue funding these enterprises. This has led to discussion among BPCA directors about the possible need to delay at least some of these projects.

225 Rector PlaceThe need to borrow hundreds of millions of dollars comes at a time of acute distress in the credit markets, which raises questions about how the bonds issued to raise this money will be rated, and at what cost and under what conditions the money will be available. In addition, these demands on the BPCA's resources come at a moment when one building in the neighborhood (225 Rector Place) has entered foreclosure, others may be facing financial distress because of the turbulent real estate market, and still others are demanding that the terms under which they pay the BPCA millions of dollars in ground rent each year be restructured.

At last Tuesday's meeting of the BPCA's Board, directors and senior staff discussed both the Authority's current financial position and the outlook for raising additional money. Chief financial officer Robert Serpico reviewed the results of an independent audit that pronounced the Authority's financial condition sound, but said about "hedge swaps" - derivatives held by the BPCA as investment instruments - that "if we were to pay them off today... it would cost close to $80 million." He went on to explain "that would be a liability that's disclosed in the footnotes" of the BPCA's financial statements. In response, BPCA chairman James Gill  cautioned the Authority's outside auditors, "if there's anything at all that comes to your attention that is untoward at all, in any way, shape or form, I expect you to tell the Board about that.... And if you don't, you'll get fired."

As the discussion turned to Gov. Paterson's plan to siphon more than $270 million from BPCA to the State, Authority Board member Charles Urstadt wondered, "what rights does the State have?" to the BPCA's "joint purpose" account, which now holds more than $200 million (mostly from revenue generated by the ground rents). Mr. Serpico answered, "none," and explained that this money can be accessed only by the unanimous consent of three parties: the Mayor, the New York City Comptroller and the BPCA Board.

Because the governor is not included among officials who can approve or veto any proposed use of these funds, the State technically has no direct claim on BPCA revenue. However,  the governor does have sole authority to appoint the Board members who control the BPCA, and therefore has considerable influence over its decision-making.

Chairman Gill, and BPCA president James Cavanaugh acknowledged that the City and the State have been quietly negotiating over Mr. Paterson's proposal. Several Board members appeared to hint at the City's intention to demand a similar payout from the BPCA, a proposal that has not been formally announced. Mr. Gill said, "the State has made its wishes known and the City has expressed an interest in participating." Board member David Cornstein referred to the "likely demand from the City and State for future funding."

Mr. Cavanaugh then provided an overview of the Authority's plans to issue new bonds. "Last fall the Authority had moved in the direction of raising $100 million for our capital program," he said. But "we did not borrow the money because of the turbulence in the financial markets." He went on to say, "we anticipate that, in the spring, when there will hopefully be less turbulence in the financial markets, it will be a better time to borrow."

Board member Robert Mueller disputed this assumption: "There's no guarantee that the markets will be better in the spring," he said, attempting to refocus the discussion on yoking the fiscal needs of Albany and City Hall to the BPCA's finances. "At what point in time," he asked, "do we have a more thorough discussion about what's going to happen with the State and the City?"

Mr. Mueller went on to reflect that "the financial project of going out to raise $500 million or more" - an estimated figure of the amount necessary to fund BPCA needs as well as the $250 million demanded by the state, and possible additional funds required by the City - "is a very serious thing. For sure, our credit rating is going to go down. For sure, it's going to inhibit us from going back to the market for any significant amount of money in the foreseeable future. And I'm not sure the State and City care about that as much as they care about trying to deal with their very significant budget issues."

He also voiced concerns about the financial condition of the BPCA. "The position of the Authority is, on paper, better than it's ever been," he admitted. "But in terms of the economic situation, there are issues among building owners that are deteriorating." He added, "two or three buildings are in trouble. We need to include that in our considerations."

Community CenterDavid Cornstein suggested that, "knowing the economy right now... should we not perhaps be slowing down some of these projects until we get a clearer understanding of where we're going?" Among the projects discussed as candidates for delayed funding were the new community center planned for North End Avenue.

After the meeting, a BPCA insider who asked not to be identified, shared additional reservations about the possibility of the Authority taking on so much additional debt. "What they're talking about essentially is using debt to improve the present by robbing the future," he said. "It will increase the amount of the Authority's debt load substantially, but the City and State won't be paying this money back. This community will be paying it back, and it will take decades."

This source added that, "one of the questions every lender or bond underwriter asks is 'what is the money you're borrowing going to be used for?' They always want to see a productive purpose." He added that "it doesn't necessarily have to be anything that will generate additional funds, but using bond money even for something like parks indirectly adds value to the community." In contrast, he observed, "borrowing money just to give it to the City and State doesn't fit any reasonable definition of 'productive.' That means the money just disappears."

Access Restricted lecture in J.P. Morgan's digs
Third in free series of Downtown lectures

14 Wall

J.P. Morgan once lived on the 31st floor of 14 Wall St. Late a restaurant occupied the space, but closed. The walls are bare, but the view is still outstanding. (Photo: Dean Kaufman)

J.P. Morgan's apartment on the 31st floor of 14 Wall St. must have been sumptuous when the building was completed in 1912. The view from his windows remains and can be enjoyed on March 11 during the third lecture in the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council's Access Restricted series, which brings speakers to Downtown spaces that are usually closed to the public. Journalist Robert Neuwirth will talk about black, gray, and other alternative markets as practiced in various shanty towns and immigrant communities around the world. His free lecture is entitled "Under the Table and Off the Books: Informal Economies in the Developing City - and Your City." Registration begins today.

To write his book, "Shadow Cities: A Billion Squatters, a New Urban World," Mr. Neuwirth lived in shanty towns across the developing world. Squatting, he argues, is an ancient and legitimate form of urban development. His work was supported in part by a research and writing grant from the John D. & Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation - the so-called "genius grants." Mr. Neuwirth has written for The Nation, Fortune, The New York Times, The Washington Post, New York, The Village Voice and Wired. He is currently working on a book about the global reach of informal economy.

The skyscraper at 14 Wall St. was originally known as the Bankers Trust Building for the bank that occupied its bottom three floors. Its distinctive pyramidal top inspired the Bankers Trust logo. J.P. Morgan's 31st floor apartment most recently was an upscale French restaurant that closed in 2006, leaving behind bare, white walls and a phenomenal view  - the kind of space a squatter could love.

Ask the Broadsheet
Remembering Marilyn Feng

Q: I can't stop thinking about the February 8th accident where a drunk driver killed Marilyn Feng and seriously injured her boyfriend, Dennis Loffredo. Is there a memorial or charity that the families would like people to donate to? Also is there any word on how long the crossing guards will last?  Immediately after the accident, there were police officers stationed there along with the crossing guards, but now I only see the crossing guards.  I wonder if they, too, will disappear. - Cindy Chen

A: According to Adam Levine at the State Department of Transportation (DOT), traffic control duties at the intersection of Route 9A and Albany Street are shared by the DOT and the New York Police Department (NYPD). The regulatory presence at the intersection, to his knowledge, has not changed since Ms. Feng's death. Currently, said Mr. Levine, two traffic enforcement agents from the NYPD are charged with facilitating traffic flow through the construction site while two flaggers from the State DOT are responsible for guiding pedestrians. Traffic personnel are at the site from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily. An investigation conducted after the tragic incident, which occurred around 3:40 a.m., found that all required safety precautions and signage were in place. As a result, the DOT has not increased personnel at the intersection.

The Broadsheet DAILY was unable to find any information regarding memorial or charity donations in Ms. Feng's honor (her parents live in Shanghai, China.) If any readers are aware of ways in which the community can support Ms. Feng's family or Mr. Loffredo, please contact us at editor@ebroadsheet.com.

At the Full Board meeting of Community Board 1 last Tuesday, the Board approved a letter drafted by Bob Townley, chair of CB1's Waterfront Committee, that addressed speeding and drunk driving on West Street. Julie Menin, chair of Community Board 1, sent the letter to Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly with copies to elected officials.

The letter stated that cars on West Street consistently violate speed limits and that drunk driving is common, especially in the evening and at night, when Marilyn Feng was killed by a drunk Jersey City policeman.

"The evenings seem to belong to the intoxicated drivers," the letter said. "West Street is now completely lawless during the night, especially Friday and Saturday. We are requesting immediate check points, and cars patrolling."

Project Cicero; Pre-K enrollment; Bone marrow donors needed

··· Project Cicero

Project CiceroProject Cicero is an annual, non-profit book drive designed to create - or supplement - school and classroom libraries for children in under-resourced New York City public schools. This year, books will be collected at Lower Manhattan schools Monday, March 2 through Thursday, March 5.

Project Cicero collects new and gently used books for children and young adults. Books must be in new or excellent condition. Book needs include early readers through high school fiction and all non-fiction (including reference books, biographies, science and math), both hardcover and paperback. Picture books are also welcome. Reference materials should not be more than five years old. Project Cicero does not accept discards from school libraries, textbooks or books for adults.

Since its inception in 2001, Project Cicero has distributed nearly 1,150,000 new and gently used books to 6,500 New York City classrooms and libraries, reaching 250,000 students. Over 1,000 teachers from all over New York City are invited to make their selections from Project Cicero's donations in early March. Hundreds of student, parent and teacher volunteers assist in all aspects of collecting and distributing the books. For more information about Project Cicero, click here.

··· Pre-K enrollment opens March 6
Families interested in enrolling children in pre-kindergarten for the 2009-2010 school year can apply beginning March 6. Children must turn four years old by Dec. 31, 2009, to be eligible. Beginning March 6, families can obtain the 2009 Pre-Kindergarten Directory, which includes the application for public school programs, at any public elementary school, borough enrollment office, community school district office or pre-kindergarten program run by a community-based organization (CBO). For the first time this year, families can complete the application either on paper or online. The application deadline is April 3.
The public school pre-kindergarten application will be available in nine languages on the Department's Web site at www.nyc.gov/schools/PreK. Starting March 6, families can also complete their public school pre-kindergarten application on the Department's Web site.
At 11 informational sessions, representatives from the Office of Student Enrollment and the Office of Early Childhood Education will present an overview of the admissions process and answer questions. Translation and interpretation services will be provided for families that do not speak English. All sessions will run from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. For Manhattan Districts 1,  2 and 4, the sessions will take place at the High School for Health Professions and Human Services, 345 E. 15th St.

··· Bone marrow donors needed

Jasmina and ChrisFive-year-old Jasmina Anema began her second round of chemotherapy on Friday but "she's in good spirits," according to Karen Detrick, the mother of Jasmina's best friend, Isabelle. Jasmina has been hospitalized since Jan. 20, 2009, when she was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of leukemia. Chemotherapy can buy her time, but only a bone marrow donation can save her life.

Jasmina is African-American and was adopted. Her doctor explained that finding a perfect bone marrow donor would be extremely difficult because African-Americans have more diverse HLA (human leukocyte antigen) types. Jasmina has no full siblings, and because she was adopted, there is no information about her extended birth family.

People from ages 18 to 55 can be bone marrow donors. Registration as a potential donor entails swabbing the inside of your cheeks and sending the sample to a lab to be tissue typed. Once you are processed, your information is stored anonymously until your 61st birthday, unless you ask to be removed. Most of the time, the actual procedure for donating bone marrow is similar to donating blood. Around one-quarter of bone marrow donations entail withdrawing marrow from the donor's hip using a special syringe. This is an out-patient procedure done with local or general anesthesia.

On March 7 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., PS 41 at 116 W. 11th St. will hold a bone marrow registration event with information about bone marrow donation and assistance in sending in a cheek swab sample. The event includes a silent auction to raise money for the lab fees to test and type each potential donor. (Each test costs $65.)

Because of the severity of her illness, Jasmina is unable to leave the hospital, but people have been coming to see her, including Chris Wilcox of the Knicks. Isabelle and her mother visit several times a week. "The last time," said Karen Detrick, "the girls taped their hands together with doctor's tape because they didn't want to leave each other." It took a long time to cut the tape off, and "they were sobbing when it was time to go."

For more information about Jasmina and about how to become a bone marrow donor, go to http://oneforjasmina.com/
