At the link below, PortSide NewYork shares our recommendations on how to improve equity on NYC's waterfront, an update to a waterfront policy paper we sent to the de Blasio transition team in January 2014.

Unlocking the potential of NYC's waterfront
A progressive roadmap for the Sixth Borough

Many of the region's waterfront people will focus on waterfront equity at Thursday's annual waterfront conference hosted by the Waterfront Alliance. Three of us from PortSide NewYork will be there, and we want to talk equity and waterfront activation with you. Look for Carolina Salguero, Dan Goncharoff, and Ray Howell.

Our document discusses how to make greater use of the waterways and waterfront and how to reverse the "Tale of Two Cities" on the waterfront by:
  • Revising management structure
  • Changing design concepts and priorities
  • Lifting impediments to historic ship and maritime programs
  • Seeking models of success in US coastal areas

Fact sheets at the end provide more detail on:
  • The maritime eco-system
  • Waterborne evacuations and disaster response
  • Infrastructure impediments to boat use of NYC piers
  • Historic ships & maritime programs
