Bronx River Crossing proposes a reconsideration of the Bronx River as a spine capable of weaving social and spatial networks across the borough. Bronx River Crossing coincides with Levi and Schachter's current design of the Bronx River Community Charter School (BCCS) to be located near the Bronx River, and the school's plan to make the river a main line of their curriculum emphasizing ecology and community activism. The project complements current ongoing efforts for ecological reclamation by local activists—from the Bronx River Alliance's restoration of the river's natural ecology and watershed to Rocking the Boat, a boat-building initiative begun at a Southwest Bronx junior high school—to reveal and create physical links between neighborhoods, institutions and public space along the river.  Project done with Alexander Levi and Amanda Schachter.    Text from Van Allen Fellowship page
