Hmm in urban planning, yellow typically means residential.One question I have about all this involves the open parking lots on the river between the roads right off Exit 6. These seem to be a great spot for developing nice public space for the community to access and enjoy the river. The area directly to the south is the Children's Museum and some park space. This could be an extension of that park.
Was this addressed in the meeting? I note that the space is marked in yellow on the picture below, but it's not clear what that designates.
The other issue is getting access to that space from the other side of the Degan and the Metro North tracks. Given that both the 153rd St ramp and the Metro North Overpass will likely need moving or adjusting to fit the Stadium, there should be ample opportunity to upgrade to something that allows pedestrians to cross the tracks on both sides of the Stadium.
