Serrano Helps Open Hell Gate Pathway on Randall's Island; Plans for a Pedestrian Bridge Connecting the South Bronx to Randall’s Island also Announced

Here is news on a ribbon cutting for a new pathway on Randall's Island that should eventfully lead to a pedestrian / cyclist bridge leading into the South Bronx. It looks like the Bx. can have the industry and jobs created by the Fresh Direct move to Port Morris, and a greenway with a bridge connecting the South Bronx to Randall’s Island.

On Friday, Congressman Serrano attended the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for the new Hell's Gate Pathway on Randall's Island.  The pathway runs under the scenic arches of the Hell Gate Bridge and railroad trestle, connecting the Hell Gate to the southern end of Randall's Island Park. The next step in the plan is for the pathway to be connected to the South Bronx Greenway by building a bridge across the Bronx Kill. "I am happy to have worked with partners from city and state government, the Randall's Island Park Alliance, and partners from the private sector to create more than a mile of non-vehicular access along renovated and reclaimed parkland," said Serrano. "I look forward to crossing the Bronx Connector and using Randall’s Island along with people from my community in the very near future. It is a very exciting vision that is now coming to reality." The Ribbon Cutting was done with the help and participation of the Bike New York and children from P.S. 180.
