Dangerous Turf

On May 30, AM Grace Lee joined Grand Street Democrats, local residents and activists to tour East River Park and discuss it’s synthetic turf fields and the dangers they pose to our local environment. The tour focused on the playing fields at Pier 42 and Corlears Hook. It’s blowing into the East River, potentially harming wildlife, gets hot in summer, off-gasses, traps bacteria, etc. NYC needs less, not more astroturf!
