Bette Midler Nonprofit Unveils Plan to Build South Bronx Waterfront Parks

(DNAINFO) Eddie Small — A nonprofit founded by Bette Midler wants to build two new waterfront parks in the South Bronx.

The New York Restoration Project, started by the “Beaches” movie star,recently released a plan called the Haven Project that aims to help better connect residents of Mott Haven and Port Morris with their waterfront.

One of the initial focuses of the plan will be to build waterfront parks in the southeast corner of Port Morris at 132nd and 134th Streets. This effort is meant to build off of momentum from the Randall’s Island Connector, a pedestrian bridge from The Bronx to Randall’s Island that is expected to be completed this summer and would be located very close to both parks.
