Residents of Elmwood Park live downtown and, in some cases, pay downtown prices for their homes.

But with three four-lane highways separating them from the city center – Elmwood Avenue, Assembly Street and Huger Street – they might as well live in the Northeast.

“We have to drive to CanalSide; we have to drive to the Vista,” said Peter Korper, president of the Elmwood Park Neighborhood Association. “You do feel a bit cut off.”

But a group of downtown neighborhood associations are hoping to change that by transforming an old railroad bed and two train tunnels into a one-mile walking trail that would connect Elmwood Avenue to Lady Street.
