Now in its 17th successful year, this innovative event is an example of a sustained partnership between local and city-wide organizations and Friends of Brook Park of the South Bronx.
With South Bronx Unite again this year! We will visit the site they had proposed to put Fresh Direct. We will show where the South Bronx Greenway Randall’s ISland Conector IS STILL NOT COMPLETED.
April 20th, 12:00 pm, Brook Park, E. 141st St & Brook Ave, South Bronx.
This is really a trip on the wild side for a unique view of what is world-renowned as the “South Bronx.” A leisurely tour that includes beautiful natural wonders of the waterfront, community gardens and art, and historic places. See the fresh cherry blossoms!
On this trip participants of all ages are made aware through actual site visits of polluting fossil fuel power plants and gargantuan waste transfer facilities that litter our rivers’ shores. Alternatives to the existing government policies are brought to everyone’s attention, with post-ride action steps including promoting demonstrations, letter writing, and email campaigns.
Time’s Up! provided critical outreach and promotion for this ride and early support has led to significant growth in attendance as well as continued support and involvement with the important efforts of Friends of Brook Park by ride participants. FoBP offers a video for further information about local organizing campaigns against pollution and unjust land-use siting issues.
Ride returns to the park.
