This Week: West Side Greenway Changes, Giovanni Nin Memorial
A late addition to the Streetsblog calendar that Hudson River Greenway users will want to squeeze into their schedules tonight: Community Board 7’s Parks and Recreation committee will hear from the Parks Department about changes to the greenway in Riverside Park intended to reduce conflicts between pedestrians and cyclists. The greenway can get uncomfortably crowded on some sections at some times, but the Parks Departments tends not to produce the best ideas to address the problem. Turn out tonight if you want a safe, comfortable, convenient greenway route for everyone in Riverside Park.
