A Million Trees, Minus 87?
August 13th, 2010

Parks Columnist Anne Schwartz filed this post:

Former Parks Commissioner Henry Stern, one of the citys most stalwart defenders against arboricide, recently sounded an alert about a proposed massacre of 87 trees, many nearly 80 years old, along Pelham Parkway in the Bronx.

What is special about this Parkway is that as you drive in it, above you is an arbor of trees whose upper branches reach from one side of the road to the other. It looks, and you feel, as if you were traveling through a park, he writes.

The $36 million road project by the NYC Department of Transportation to install guardrails and re-grade the road is supposed start this fall. Sterns comments are posted on the website of New York Civic.
