Birders on the Putnam Trail in Van Cortlandt Park, Bronx NY
On December 7th 2015, I published a post alerting readers that plans to pave the Putnam Trail that runs through the Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx NY, were once again rearing its ugly head. Here is an engineer's perspective. Margarita Eremeyev, an engineer presents her case in a letter to Community Board 8 in the Bronx on why she thinks supporting the plans to pave the trail with asphalt is a bad idea. Margarita who lives near Van Cortlandt Park, is a frequent user of the park who spends a lot of her time near the wetland area and once she found out about plans to pave, got involved with the "Save The Putnam Trail" effort.
