East River Blueway

The Office of Man­hat­tan Bor­ough Pres­i­dent Scott Stringer in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Office of New York State Assem­bly­mem­ber Brian Kavanagh and other part­ners, has com­mis­sioned a team led by WXY Archi­tec­ture + Urban Design to develop the East River Blue­way Plan, a com­mu­nity– based water­front plan­ning ini­tia­tive. The project will con­sider Manhattan’s East River water­front between the Brook­lyn Bridge and East 38th Street. This stretch of Manhattan’s shore­line faces chal­lenges that pre­vent greater water­front pub­lic access.

The East River Blue­way Plan will be the foun­da­tion for an inter­con­nected net­work of water­front sites. This net­work will inte­grate recre­ational activ­i­ties and con­nect neigh­bor­hoods to the water­front. Our work will include vision­ing; fea­si­bil­ity of locat­ing on-water sites; design and costs; and imple­men­ta­tion and cam­paign strate­gies for the East River Blueway.
