Many Americans travel to Europe or Asia and are amazed at the ease of traversing long distances via rail or bus. But when it comes to the land of the Dwight D. Eisenhower National System of Interstate and Defense Highways , it seems impossible to navigate the nation without a private automobile. Is it even possible to hop on a train or bus and realistically get from East Coast to West Coast, not Jack Kerouac “On the Road” style but in some level of comfort and convenience? Turns out, it is.

Comments Off on Lower East Side Residents Battle Plan to Build Greyhound Bus Stop at Seward Park Playground

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 , 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 (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 to see how you can oppose and prevent it.
