Making a Neighborhood Trail into a Tourist Site

During Friday’s conversation the project official said the art will be a destination for people who visit from the city or other parts of the county. Perhaps.

When I noted one artist from Rockland was chosen, and none is from Westchester, he said there was a lengthy selection process, and wouldn’t I agree that the best artists live in or near the city?

No, I told him. I disagree.

TAPPAN ZEE (Ilan Averbuch, Long Island City) Sculpture

The above sculpture “pays homage to the Native American Lenape and their history along the Hudson River, while also symbolizing the value of collaboration in crossing rivers, building communities, and reaching new horizons,” the press release said.

I hope New York State’s next governor will consider paying homage to their history along the Hudson River by restoring the name Tappan Zee to the new bridge.

I’d like to know what you think.
