Railroad Right-Of-Way

Redevelopment in the inner east side will be compromised in all three freeway options if the railroad right-of-way is not removed from 1st Avenue. It is projected that over 100 trains a day will pass through this right-of-way in 20 years when high-speed rail and commuter trains become a reality. This will create a barrier to the riverfront and a discouragement for redevelopment almost equal to the presence of the freeway.
