Residents of NYC’s Lower East Side could hardly believe their ears when they heard about a new proposal to create a permanent Greyhound bus stop at Seward Park [1], which is the nation’s oldest playground. If built, the station would bring hundreds of passengers through the quiet neighborhood and see 28 departures a day [1](more than 2 an hour), negatively impacting the area’s environment, air quality, traffic and safety. Lower East Siders aren’t taking the issue lying down though – they’ve started a petition to combat the proposal and are asking for your help. If you do not want to see a peaceful neighborhood park playground defaced by hundreds of waiting strangers, their luggage, bus fumes and food trash, please read on [1] to see how you can oppose and prevent it.
