The Haven Project: A Greener Future for the South Bronx

NYRP will transform the Port Morris/Mott Haven area in multiple phases over several years. The first phase prioritizes the creation of safe and visual access to the Randall’s Island Connector, a new pedestrian bridge connecting Port Morris to Randall’s Island Park, one of the city’s largest recreational hubs. Research shows that access to large parks (greater than six acres) in New York City is linked to lower body mass index, likely due to the capacity of large open spaces to support physical activity. The new and improved access to Randall’s Island is a long-anticipated victory for South Bronx residents in need of recreational space, but while access to the Island has great potential to improve public health, the entrance to the Connector is surrounded by industry and the pathway runs underneath an Amtrak trestle, making it difficult to access.
