The New Bronx

Submitted by ub on

Metro-North rail for the East Bronx with four new stations at: Hunts Point, Parkchester, Van Nest, Morris Park, and Co-Op City.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity that will dramatically increase access to the Bronx, New York City, and the region and will support the city as it rebounds from the effects of COVID-19.

Since the launch of the Bronx Metro-North Station Area Study (BMNS) in 2018, city agencies, residents, workers, institutions, elected officials, and other stakeholders have been engaged in station-area planning to help ensure this new public transit service supports Bronx residents with access to jobs, housing, amenities, and more.

Implementation of BMNS will support the city’s recovery from COVID-19. As we continue to fight the pandemic, we seek to make the city a hub for public health research, create high-quality jobs, and make New York the fairest city in America. Implementing the station area plan is an opportunity to attract public and private investment in housing and businesses, bring much-needed amenities and services to the Bronx, and strengthen critical job sectors to support New York City’s economic growth and recovery from COVID-19.
