Summary

Following our tours of Gowanus and Bushwick, we turn our attention to the proposed rezoning of Southern Boulevard in the Bronx. The city's plan to study and potentially rezone this area emerged after New York State decided to convert the Sheridan Expressway into a pedestrian-friendly boulevard, after decades of advocacy from local groups. However, many questions and criticisms have been raised by local officials and activists regarding matters of public process, equity, the need for industrial retention, and the potential for secondary impacts of gentrification and displacement. How will new development complement or integrate with previous efforts? Will historic resources such as a decaying train station designed by the architect of the Woolworth building be considered ? Will design based on principles of sustainability predominate? Join us as we explore these questions via a terrain poised for change. Please note that this tour will last two and half hours and covers a sizeable physical area.
