Uptown Links: City Plans New Bike-Friendly Harlem River Greenway, and More

City Planning Bike-Friendly Harlem River Greenway

• The city has announced plans to build a seven-mile greenway for cyclists and pedestrians along the Harlem River in the Bronx, stretching from Randall's Island Park in the south to Van Cortlandt Park in the north. Bridges between Upper Manhattan and the Bronx would also get wider bike-friendly connections; the High Bridge is currently the only one with a spacious path, but it closes at night.

• Harlem's popular Seasoned Vegan is closing on April 1 and moving to the East Village. [@seasonedvegan]

• Local birding organization NYC Audubon is dropping Audubon from its name due the naturalist's slavery past. John James Audubon lived in an area along the Hudson River that is today known as Washington Heights, where his name appears on a major avenue as well as a historic district. He is also buried close by. [New York Times]

• A revised design for the One45 project at W 145th Street and Lenox Avenue, which includes a new eight-story building for low-income seniors, was presented to Community Board 10. [Patch]
