Washington Heights, NY -- A coalition of community members and elected officials will host a rally to protest Amtrak’s treatment of Northern Manhattan following the installation of a billboard on Amtrak property on West 155th Street and Riverside Drive in late February, and the spraying of pesticides which devastated a local community garden last fall.
At no point was an environmental or public review held with community input regarding the installation of the billboard, which has fundamentally altered the skyline of the neighborhood overnight.
Where: West 155th Street and Riverside Drive
