Reimagining the Waterfront |

“This key CIVITAS initiative grew from recognition of the deteriorated condition of the East River Esplanade from 60th – 125th Streets and the documented lack of high-quality park space in the eastern areas of our community. Superstorm Sandy was a reminder that if we do not shape our waterfront edge, nature will continue to shape it for us. While attention is on our waterfronts, we aim to make sure that the Esplanade is made into a truly great park that is an inviting destination, as well as more ecologically resilient. In its current condition and with its limited access, the waterfront represents a real missed opportunity as a recreational resource.”
