The plan to reconnect the Aqueduct trail across the Deegan Expressway in Van Cortlandt Park, the Bronx, received wide media coverage at an event in the park on March 29. Congressmen Serrano and Engel and about 60 advocates turned out in the rain to demonstrate for city funding for the pedestrian bridge, which would also reconnect parts of the park. Friends of Van Cortlandt Park organized the event; Friends of the Aqueduct were among the co-sponsors.
