The Return of Starlight Park

Janes Walk

Led By Stephen DeVillo

This once-abandoned space by the Bronx River is now a scenic park. We’ll explore its curious history, including a would-be world’s fair and a legendary amusement park, while admiring the Bronx River Art Center’s temporary art installation “River Rising/Sube El Rio.” We’ll also look at the Bronx River Alliance’s new Bronx River House, learn about the next phase of the park’s expansion, and take a peek at the mysterious “Pillars of Moses.”
