A RUMOR to the effect that the Department
of Parks had decided upon the abolition of the
system of Riverside Parks, was put into circula¬
tion about three weeks sinoe, and has obtained
considerable credence with many persons. We
are enabled to state authoritatively that there
is no truth whatever in the report, but, on the
contrary, the Department of Parks intend im¬
mediately tp commence active operations on the
Riverside Parks, and will push the work vigor¬
ously to its completion.
We are sure that property holders along that
line will hail this intention of the Park Board
with pleasure, for if ever a body of men have
waited patiently to see something for their
money, the owners of Riverside Park prop¬
erty may be set down among the number.
The following are among the laws affecting
New York City, passed at the late session of
AN ACT in relation to changing the present
