Seven protestors were arrested at a march to save trees at Asphalt Green that the city planned to cut down to create an entry ramp for the East 91st Street Marine Transfer Station. The planned entry ramp will bisect Asphalt Green's outdoor recreational areas. Councilman Ben Kallos: "It's a dark day for democracy when an administration is arresting seniors and NYCHA residents who are trying to protect a children's playground from a garbage dump."
