Should the pipeline or vault exphde on the Manhattan side of the Hudson, the potential fire radius would encompass three historic districts, including: 10 irreplaceable Landmarked buildings; 10 schools or daycare centers; 8 playgrounds, including a large playground on the pier directly adjacent to the Sanitation Pier (the entry point of the pipeline); 13 churches or religious insfiiufions; more than 28 art and cultural centers (induding the Ground Zero Museum Workshop): the Hudson River Greenway, shoreline and West Side Highway; more than 38 restaurants; counfiess boutiques, hotels, businesses and residences.
