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.
