Another Robert Moses Parkway Myth

Question: Are you willing to compromise with those that are advocating for the complete closure of the Parkway?

Answer: A reconfigured Parkway could include two lanes, but it appears there is no such compromise by those advocating for the closure of the Parkway.(Source: Parkway Preservation Committee website)

The advocates for parkway removal provided a logical compromise. Remove the Robert Moses Parkway. Send traffic around the DeVeaux neighborhood by rerouting it onto Hyde Park Boulevard/Highland Avenue to Main Street.

Everyone wins. Restoration of the gorge rim will gain parkland for Niagara Falls and business owners can celebrate the inflow of traffic into every business district in the city. The Deveaux residents keep their tranquil neighborhood. Hyde Park and Highland Avenue are revitalized.
