Gallery: Lower East Side Residents Battle Greyhound Bus Stop Proposal a...

We usually consider bus travel a good thing here at Inhabitat, but not when it involves building a disruptive and polluting Greyhound transportation terminal in front of a quiet neighborhood playground. Last week, DNAinfo reported on Greyhound's proposal to build a permanent large bus stop at the Lower East Side's historic Seward Park, and area residents have voiced their concerns about how such a station - which would see a stream of 28 departures a day (more than 2 an hour) - will negatively impact the surrounding environment, air quality, traffic and safety. Neighborhood residents who've heard about the news are appalled at the thought of having to share their peaceful neighborhood park playground, gathering space and library with hundreds of waiting strangers, their luggage, bus fumes and food trash, and have begun to take action with petitions and posters. If you live on the Lower East Side and do not want to see this new Greyhound terminal come to fruition at Seward Park, please read on to see how you can help oppose and prevent it.
