Inwood’s waterfront restaurant gets cut in half

May.May 29, 2012 01:00 PM

A 1,000-seat restaurant along the Hudson River that was originally proposed as part of Inwood’s waterfront revival has been scaled back to half its original size, because the community said the larger eatery and bar would disturb the neighborhood’s quality of life, DNAinfo reported. La Marina will open within the coming weeks on the western end of Dyckman Street, but with seating now capped at 500.

The Parks Department said that Manhattan River Group, La Marina’s concessionaire, did not receive approval for a seating capacity of 1,000 — parks only approved 500, it said. The Parks Department manages the space that the restaurant will occupy.

However, La Marina included the 1,000 number in its State Liquor Authority application, according to DNAinfo. Manhattan River Group did not respond to DNAinfo for comment.

Residents said that a restaurant of this size would create noise and traffic down the corridor of Dyckman Street between Broadway and the Hudson River. La Marina will not host concerts or dancing, and will operate for fewer hours than originally proposed if the liquor license gets approved. [DNAinfo]
