The undersigned members of Manhattan’s Upper West Side and the Manhattan community at large support the Proposal to beautify and green the West Side Highway along Riverside Boulevard, Riverside Park South and the Manhattan West Side Greenway by growing an ivy covered trellis arbor on a lightweight wire rod and cable system installed alongside the road structure.
This arbor treatment will create a grand promenade of living green columns and arches that will link the midtown piers at West 59th Street, the south entrance to Riverside Park South with historic Riverside Park at West 72nd Street, the north section of Riverside Park South.
Growing TheVineLine will infinitely enhance the visual appearance of the West Side Highway structure, now named Joe Dimaggio Highway, blending it with the landscape environment of the Greenway transforming its presence from an infamous eyesore to and aesthetically harmonious linear Living Landmark.
