City Issues RFP for 2 Riverfront Parks in Inwood

New York City Economic Development Corporation and NYC Parks recently issued a request for proposals to design two new waterfront parks at Academy Street and North Cove, along the Harlem River. The RFP was issued in connection with the rezoning of Northern Manhattan’s Inwood neighborhood last summer.

As part of the plan to complete the 32-mile Manhattan Greenway ringing the island, the city has committed $41 million toward the development of a new, two-acre waterfront park between Tenth Avenue and the Harlem River, known as the Sherman Creek Malécon. Further, the city will invest $9 million to restore the North Cove as a natural resource, and transform areas currently used for parking into public open space.

“More open space is always welcome—and especially welcome here, across from the Dyckman Houses,” said Manhattan Borough President Gale A. Brewer. “This is yet another building block in the Manhattan Greenway around our island.”
