New York City Mayor Eric wants to see a greener and pollution-free Big Apple in the future.

On Sunday, Adams said the city will restart more than 100 stalled construction projects costing $417 million at parks and playgrounds.

Adams revealed the 104 undertakings range from rebuilding a basketball court at Chelsea Park in Manhattan to revamping the bathhouse at McCarren Park in Brooklyn and installing fitness equipment at the Bronx’s Ewen Park, according to the Parks Department.

Sources said the plan also includes nearly a dozen tree-planting projects.

“Today is a great day for our city, it’s a great day for our parks and it’s an important pathway as we revitalize our city as we come out of COVID,” Adams said.

According to reports, the park and playground projects will take 12 to 18 months.

The Democratic mayor further revealed that nearly seven in 10 of them will be in neighborhoods that are “underserved” in terms of existing park resources.
