Park(ing) the Sheridan

The Southern Bronx River Watershed Alliance celebrated Park(ing) Day 2007 with a wildly successful installation on Southern Boulevard near the Hunts Point Avenue 6 Train station. Hundreds of community members stopped by to play card games, eat snacks, and learn more about our plan to replace the Sheridan Expressway with affordable housing, green space, and new economic development opportunities. Folks came out to see the parking space that became a park and walked away eager to see a highway turned into a greenway. Even News Channel 12 stopped by to produce a four minute segment on the campaign! Special thanks to the folks at Transportation Alternatives who helped with press and logistics.
