New York Times, etc.

A story about the McBride Viaduct controversy ran on the front page of The New York Times on March 12th, 2018, "In Erie, One City Block is a Trek of Disrespect." (Essay by Michael Kimmelman. Photos by Damon Winters) The Erie Times-News dismissed Kimmelman in an opinion piece, "New York Times Takes McBride Fallacies National." Eight months later, Landscape Architecture Magazine‘s Timothy A. Schuler, covered the issue and featured concept plans for McBride Viaduct Park by Erie native Michael Beightol, now a Cleveland landscape architect.

Scroll down to find links to an op-ed by walkablity expert and Erie native, Philip Langdon along with several essays, a film trailer and and animation about the Viaduct / East Ave. Bridge. Despite the demolition of the Viaduct, residents of Erie continue to lobby for walkablity and transparent decision-making via ongoing actions including a March 2019 essay in the Erie Reader: Want Innovation? Then Make Erie Walkable.
