throgs neck / edgewater park, Bronx

Where the East River and the Long Island Sound meet; the waterfront between the Whitestone and Throgs Neck bridges

“The Parks Dept has a long simmering plan to build a public world-class 18-hole golf course here. In addition to the golf course, a separate 20-acre waterfront promenade will convert the undeveloped landfill into a passive ecologically responsible park with a beach, picnic area, comfort station and views of the Long Island Sound.”

[Update; it’s been announced that Donald Trump has won the bid to develop the golf course — controversy and more delays are sure to follow.]
