The grass is always greener on the other side of Rikers’ closing.

Community leaders gathered on Tuesday night at the Rikers Revisioning Forum to raise awareness about the potential closing of Rikers and invite attendees to add their ideas to the deliberation around what will become of the land. While the ambitious renewable Rikers legislation piqued attendees’ interest, many were also uncertain of the plan’s feasibility.

Residents agreed on one thing: Rikers needs to go.
