Various Locations

Project Details

MFS conducted a partial boundary survey, which involved the identification of property lines by locating various physical markers and features such as property markers, monuments, cross cuts, fences, walls, buildings, and curb lines. Extensive research was carried out at The Borough’s Topographical Bureau to gather information about property lines, Right of Way (ROW) lines, and easements. This information was obtained from sections maps, damage maps, alteration maps, site plans, surveys, minor or major subdivision plans, and other improvement plans within the project limits. The survey plan included the depiction of easements as documented in the records.

Furthermore, MFS prepared easement exhibits along with corresponding metes and bounds descriptions for areas where emergency flood barriers were proposed to be deployed within the streets and properties of Manhattan, New York City. Specifically, these areas included Broome Street at its intersection with the tunnel entrance, as well as Hudson Street, Canal Street, and Vestry Street at the south tunnel exit.

The survey limits encompassed the following areas:

• Broome Street, spanning from Hudson Street to Varick Street, which includes the tunnel entrance.

• Canal Street, extending from Hudson Street to Varick Street, which includes the south tunnel exit.

• Hudson Street, ranging from Canal Street to Vestry Street.

• Vestry Street, stretching from Hudson Street to Canal Street.
