Ann-Marie MitroffA city of shut down factories. A city in a desperate socio-economic state. But Ann-Marie Mitroff, Director of River Projects at Groundwork Hudson Valley, has teamed up with Jim Pinto, Director at City of Yonkers Office of Downtown & Waterfront, to try to turn things around... in a whole new way. Following years of lobbying, their project of “daylighting” the Saw Mill River - buried under downtown Yonkers for the past 90 years – has just been greenlit. Their hope: Create a “natural” park with a river in the city centre that will attract visitors... and investors. Can Nature and the City of Yonkers work together to improve both their plights?
