Beginning on June 5th, the Riverside Park Conservancy will host a summer-long event celebrating its 35th anniversary and “our city’s slow emergence from the COVID-19 pandemic,” according to a press release. RE:GROWTH, A Celebration of Art, Riverside Park, and the New York Spirit will be a free, park-wide exhibition designed to “honor the resolve and resilience of all New Yorkers…and provide [them] with the culture they crave.” 13 site-specific installations, featuring 20 artists, will span several miles and “can be enjoyed safely all in one day or over several summer visits.”

      Why not spend the time and effort repairing the collapsing second tier from 96-120th Street instead of putting lipstick on a pig? Am I the only one who sees that steady erosion????
