Description

The cruise runs approximately 1.5 hours.

Highlights, topics and themes of the 2014 AIANY tour include:

  • Exploration of planning visions for both reclaiming the post-industrial waterfront, as the “6th Borough,” and addressing rising sea levels
  • Insightful coverage of Manhattan’s classic spires, including the Chrysler and Woolworth Buildings, as well as a sharp focus on the new World Trade Center buildings and recent “starchitecture” boom; including buildings by Frank Gehry, Jean Nouvel and other noted international and local architects
  • The greater waterfront access allowed by new parks and recreation piers including the ecologically driven features designed by leading landscape architects
  • The Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, and the newest waterfront monument: Roosevelt Island’s FDR Four Freedoms Park
  • NYC’s engineering masterpieces including the Brooklyn and the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
  • The adaptation of the High Line as an elevated, linear park and its role in the development of West Chelsea and Hudson Yards.
  • The story of post WWII urban renewal and public housing along the Lower East Side.
