Tour participants walked along the 1/4 mile path under the Amtrak bridge leading to the bridge connecting The Bronx with Randall’s Island last November 2014.

20 years of hard community work culminates this weekend when the Randall’s Island Connector finally opens to the public, offering a proper connection between Port Morris in the Bronx and Randall’s Island.

Now, this Saturday you can take a brief tour of the area guided by Friends of Brook Park and South Bronx Unite to learn more about, “…the South Bronx waterfront, community gardens, art and historic places. Through site visits, participants will learn about the polluting fossil-fuel power plants and the waste transfer facilities that litter our rivers’ shores, and the NOW FINALLY COMPLETED South Bronx Greenway Randall’s Island Connector!!!

The grand opening for the connector is this Saturday, November 14th! Check here for more info.
