Spin and the Roberts Moses Parkway

The Parkway Preservation Committee's website spun a gateway goal of the Niagara River Greenway Plan into an unsubstantiated statement: [The Robert Moses Parkway] "is the gateway for communities from Niagara Falls to Youngstown."

Niagara Falls is the gateway to the Niagara River Greenway Corridor. The Robert Moses Parkway bypasses every business district in the City of Niagara Falls. That fact alone is why the following entities passed resolutions supporting the total removal of the road to the north City line: The Main Street Business and Professional Association, The Niagara Falls Tourism Advisory Board and the Niagara Falls City Council.

Lewiston and Youngstown, NY will be unaffected by removal as the major routes north are the I-190 Interstate (use exit 25A and you will exit across the street from the current exit of the parkway in Lewiston) and Route 265 (Military Road). Both routes run parallel to the Robert Moses Parkway, making the parkway redundant.
