In recent news, the East River Blueway project has taken a significant step forward. The project was previously mentioned here in reference to a planning meeting that was open to the public. Imagined as both an expansion of recreational facilities and an increase in river access between 38th street and the Brooklyn bridge, WXY + Urban Design, the Manhattan-based firm responsible for such projects as the Far Rockaway redesign and the intriguing benches in use at the Battery Park Ferry Terminal, has been chosen as the design firm to bring the project to fruition. One of the firm’s principals, Claire Weisz comments on the project and her vision for New York’s future.
