This walking tour explores and celebrates the achievements and future of community-led, government-funded projects that are reshaping the urban environment of The Bronx.

We will visit Drew Garden, discussing the transformation of the West Farms intersection through a fully-funded DDC project. The tour will also explore a section of the Cross Bronx Expressway, discussing successful funding projects and the CapThe Cross Bronx initiative. The tour proceeds through Starlight Park, stops at River House beside the repurposed Sheridan Blvd, and concludes at the Cass Gilbert-design station by the Whitlock Avenue Train Station.
