Lafeyette Ave (located in Reach 1 of the Estuary Section) refers to the estuarine portion of the Bronx River downstream of the Bruckner, on the east bank, where remnant patches of Spartina alterniflora and salt marsh remain. Here, bank re-vegetation was attempted along the shore among the existing patches of Spartina, using the same approach as was used at the Concrete Plant. These installations were largely unsuccessful, probably as a result of the more exposed, higher scour environment and lower elevations. (see map below).
