A proposal to close the gap in the East River Greenway between 38th and 60th streets is making significant progress. First, NYC received $13 million from Con Edison to rehabilitate the pier between 38th and 41st Streets. Second, Governor Cuomo signed legislation that allows the City, local elected officials, and the United Nations to negotiate a land swap that could result in revenue to pay for waterfront redevelopment, including a riverside promenade and other park improvements. The legislation gives parties until October 10 to come up with an agreement.
Two public forums will be held on the issue:
Sept. 8, 4 to 7 pm, Sutton Place Synagogue, 225 E. 51st St
Sept. 20, 5 to 8 pm, NYU Langone Medical Center, 550 First Ave.
