On January 2nd, the full board of Community Board 4  passed unanimously the resolution to move forward with the creation of a new park by reclaiming three soon-to-be-unused lanes of traffic on Dyer Avenue between 34th and 35th Streets.  Community members spoke in favor of the park. The resolution asks the support of Port Authority DOT and Parks to make it happen.

The resolution also asks the Dyer Park Advisory Committee to raise funds to remove a traffic light island which is an obstacle to the project, to produce a budget and to hold two town hall meetings before construction commences.

What a delightful idea having a green park in the 34th,35th Dyer Avenue Street area. I was raised in a tenement at 415 West 35th Street between 9th and Dyer Avenue. The tenement is unfortunately long gone but many happy memories of good friends and families remain. We used the area of the street where the park will hopefully be built as a walk through to get to our Parish of St. Michaels Church on 34th Street which still stands. This would be a tribute to the many good hardworking people who had lived in that neighborhood.
Many Thanks
