What to do about the Eastside Greenway? It’s the last missing link to completely surrounding the island of Manhattan with a green path dedicated solely to bikers and pedestrians.
Transportation Alternatives, along with D3 have come up with a idea.
A design contest called: Close the Gap
From the site:
“Close the Gap, an international design competition sponsored by Transportation Alternatives and d3, invites architects, landscape architects, urban designers, engineers, and students worldwide to broaden the dialogue of alternative solutions for sustainable urban living. The competition focuses on the Midtown sector of New York Cityâ€™s East River Greenway–a critical missing link in Manhattanâ€™s alternative transportation infrastructure.”
