This Week: Defending Riverside Park, Extending Eighth Avenue

Two community boards turn their attention this week to important pieces of Manhattan bike infrastructure: the Riverside Park connection to the Hudson River Greenway and the Eighth Avenue protected bike path. By reiterating the right of cyclists to ride through Riverside Park and showing support for the Eighth Avenue path and its proposed extension, CB 4 and CB 7 can help protect and improve the borough’s existing bike network. Also on Wednesday, a daylong conference on what makes New York’s land-use process unique and how to improve it.
