WHY SHOULD YOU CARE ABOUT THE KINGSBRIDGE ARMORY PROJECT?

The Kingsbridge National Ice Center project is a great opportunity to create something new for our Bronx community.  This development will enrich the lives of young people throughout the Bronx, stimulate our local economy and create real jobs.

HOW WILL THE KNIC PROJECT BENEFIT THE BRONX?

  • 52,000 square feet of community space, which we get to decide how to use
  • Activities for kids both on and off the ice
  • Free and/or discounted activities for seniors, students and low income families
  • Living-wage jobs, with training and healthy working conditions
  • A mentoring/technical assistance program to new and/or small local businesses
  • A sports management curriculum program, in partnership with local colleges
  • A healthy choices program, including environmental, asthma and nutrition awareness

THE KNIC PROJECT IS A GREAT EXAMPLE OF RESPONSIBLE DEVELOPMENT THAT MEETS THE NEEDS OF THE COMMUNITY.
