Description

You must be age 14 or older to attend.

Highlights, topics and themes of the tour include:

  • Exploration of planning visions for both reclaiming the post-industrial waterfront, as the “6th Borough”, and addressing rising sea levels

  • 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: the Brooklyn and George Washington Bridges as well as lesser known “swing bridges” along the Harlem River
  • The adaptation of the Highline as an elevated, linear park and its role in the development of West Chelsea and Hudson Yards.
