Help Design a New Waterfront Park in the South Bronx

This Thursday, November 14, the New York City Economic Development Corporation will host the first pubic design workshop for a new upcoming 2.3 acre waterfront park along the Harlem River Waterfront.

The new park, which will be located on Exterior between E 144th and E 146th Streets, is part the city’s $200 million gentrification investment to make the area more attractive for all the thousands of new residents that will eventually occupy the several thousand new apartments that are being planned.

But in the meantime, we can still get to help design a space that we should have gotten long ago.

So join us this Thursday, November 14, 2019 at 6:00PM at Hostos Community College D Building/Savoy Manor Building located at 120 E 149th Street, 2nd Floor.

There will be a brief presentation followed by several activities designed to gather input from the community as to what we wanna see there both in terms of design and programming for the new park.
