Album Description:

Standing before a historic New York Central steam locomotive, Parks & Recreation Commissioner Adrian Benepe joined City Council Member Gale Brewer, Riverside Park Fund President James Dowell, Extell Development Corporation President Gary Barnett, and local children to drive the last spike into the ground to open the fourth and final waterfront phase of Riverside Park South. The 3.5-acre park is one of the last remaining links in a continuous Hudson River Greenway and was once the site of the New York Central Railroad's 60th Street yard. Enjoy Parks photographer Malcolm Pinckney's photos of the ribbon cutting.
