Big ups to NYBG for their speedy response to this matter! (But we would still really love to have our permanent sidewalk back... sigh.)
Re: Lower Concourse ReZoning, BronxBronx Poets Read! @ Bronx Museum
We want the zoned area to be expanded to include the next parcel/s south along the river and identified as priority park/public space. This is an ideal location for a community deprived for too long of waterfront park space, as well as a natural addition to the expanding NYC Watertrail. It is that simple!!!
To make a "serious offer," call (718) 928-6598.
