Public Meeting on Chelsea Piers’ Request to Add a Driveway Across the West Side Greenway

Less than a month after a drunk driver leaving a party at Chelsea Piers drove onto the Hudson River Greenway and killed a cyclist, Chelsea Piers wants to cut another driveway from their parking lot across the westside greenway. Chelsea Piers will make its proposal to Manhattan Community Board 4’s Transportation Committee on Wednesday, Dec. 20. Each additional driveway cutting across the bike lanes adds the potential for a fatal collision, like the one that killed Dr. Carl Nacht in June. Here is a chance to attend this meeting and voice opposition to this proposal!
