Hot Off the Presses

The Hunts Point Express is running an article on the Southern Bronx River Watershed Alliance's efforts to spread the word about the Sheridan Expressway's future to New Yorkers in all five boroughs. Reporter Daniel Allen had this to say:
"The Sheridan, Silva noted, was the brainchild of Robert Moses, whose bridge, tunnel and highway projects, including the Bruckner Expressway the Cross Bronx Expressway, transformed New York. He originally planned to link the Sheridan with I-95 by steamrolling through the Bronx Zoo and New York Botanical Garden. When opposition doomed that effort, he was left with the short stub of the Sheridan, dubbed by opponents “the road to nowhere.” It remains underused and unwanted, according to Silva."
Thanks to our friends at Solar One for the venue. Check back soon for video of our presentation at Stuyvesant Cover Park in mid-November.
