From the press release just sent by Councilman Vacca and recent news about Donald Trump bidding for the concession, I would assume Trump got the contract. If anyone knows more please do share. The press release does not mention much besides Vacca's strong support for whatever deal was struck and acknowledgement that prior dealings were a huge fiasco.



BRONX ― The following is a statement from New York City Councilman James Vacca, in regards the to the New York City Franchise and Concession Review Committee’s approval of the Ferry Point Golf Course.

“A patient and appreciative Throggs Neck community has reason to celebrate today! Although it was initially proposed 32 years ago, a vote by the Franchise and Concession Review Committee means that Ferry Point Golf Course is finally full steam ahead. This project has gone from one misstep to another, and had many observers truly wondering whether this course would ever be finished."

"In 1979, as Chairman of Bronx Community Board 10, I was involved in creating this vision. Today, as the District 13 Councilman, I am seeing the reality. It’s been a long fight and a long wait, but let me be clear, there is no reason for any further delay and my community will accept"

"I know many people refuse to accept that it is indeed the Bronx that is getting a world class golf course, but they need to get over it! It speaks to a vibrant Throggs Neck community and a borough determined to reach even greater heights."
