Yorkville and East Harlem

  • corner of 88th and Lexington 144-160 E 88th St NY, NY, 10128 United States (map)

Preview the Demise of Yorkville and East Harlem

The city is proposing to build an industrial garbage facility at 91st and York (Asphalt Green) which will run 24 hours a day, 6 days a week and have the capacity to receive garbage from 500 trucks a day. The access to the facility will be on the driveway that bisects the playing field at Asphalt Green from the Swim and Athletic Center. Get a tour of the proposed truck routes and learn the facts about why the city decided to locate a garbage facility right next to an athletic facility that serves 50,000 children a year. Also try to understand why this facility is the only one of its type being built in a residential neighborhood – because we can’t.
