The New York City Economic Development Corporation, NYC Parks, elected officials, and community members joined together to break ground along the Harlem River waterfront.
The Lower Concourse Park is a $35 million project covering 2.3 acres of land from 144th and 146th streets on the west of Exterior Street as a means to bring a renewed space to the community.
The park will include open space, a playground, restrooms, direct access to the Harlem River shoreline and more.
Officials say Thursday's ceremony has been something elected officials and community advocates have been asking for a long time.
The park is anticipated to be complete in the spring and open to the public in 2026.
