Tour the Bronx River! From your computer.
For those people who are curious about what the Bronx River is like as it winds from Muskrat Cove near Yonkers to Soundview Park where it empties into the Sound, check out this AMAZING virtual tour on the New York City Department of Parks website. The map and photos are great, but the best part are the interviews with the individuals who are working each in their own way to better the Bronx River. From an artist who dreams of a sculpture park in an abandoned park, to teachers conducting water quality tests with students, to a woman untangling the legal mess of who is responsible for the river to get cleanup efforts underway, these interviews tell a fascinating and powerful tale of how individuals are making a difference in their communities.
