There is currently a Common Gull (European subspecies/version of Mew Gull) standing on the ice on Prospect Lake in Prospect Park in Brooklyn right now. Seems likely to be the same individual that had been intermittently seen at the Brooklyn Army Terminal Pier.
All the gulls flushed and resettled a short time ago, but luckily the Common Gull remained, so it seems to be settled at the lake for the moment. Good luck if you go Doug Gochfeld.
