Visitors to Larchmont Blvd. may have noticed that the municipal parking lot on the west side of the street was closed this morning. A city contractor at the site told the Buzz that environmental testing was being done for the new park proposed for the southern edge of the lot. (The park plans have recently been progressing with the city, with oversight of the lot and funding for it recently transferred to the Bureau of Recreation and Parks.)
According to the on-site worker, the testing would be completed, and the lot open again, by late morning.
