Donald Trump let Central Park’s Lasker Rink fall into disrepair, the city controller says. An audit to be released today by the City Controller William Thompson says Trump failed to keep up the rink, near 107th Street, for nearly four years, allowing paint to peel, steps to crack, tiles to go missing and toilets to break. Trump says the rink was “a total disaster when we took it over, and now it’s beautiful.” The entry pavilion, stairs and a parapet were supposed to be fixed by October 2003, but were not done until after the audit was finished in April. more [NYDN]
