Northern In The News

The infrastructure improvements on Northern Boulevard and along Cunningham Park are getting incredibly poplar in our neighborhood. The Department of Transportation’s plan was recently highlighted in multiple media outlets.

New York 1 created a wonderful video including an interview with Michael Schenkman’s son.


Planetizen put together a great quick overview of the project.


Streetsblog did a phenomenal job digging into the real meaning of this project.


Additionally, we’ve found overwhelming community support on Joe Michaels, on the Mountain Trails, on the Motor Parkway, and at Peak Bike Shop.

If you have your own photos or articles, tag them with #FixNorthern on Twitter so we can gather everything together.

The more neighbors that support this project, the better chance of success it will have. Please come to the Community Board meeting on Monday the 5th at 7:30 when this plan will be approved or rejected.
