In the news: Regional media round-up

Greenway development, bike/ped plans, and more have been in the news this winter. Nationally, New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo made headlines with his announcement of plans to develop a 750-mile trail from New York City to the Canadian border near Buffalo. Bicycling Magazine, writing about those plans, noted “those looking for more multi-use paths should consider heading to sections of the East Coast Greenway, which will run 2,900 [sic] miles from Key West, Florida, through Calais, Maine, when finished; it’s on track to become the longest continuous multi-use trail in the country.”

Here, a round-up of recent national and regional media mentions of the East Coast Greenway.
