Come witness one of the most remarkable land reclamation projects in history. This extended AIANY architecture boat tour travels to Staten Island and offers a limited “backstage pass” to experience the transformation of the region’s former largest garbage landfill into today’s Freshkills Park. The cruise will enter a network of tidal kills (or streams) to explore the unprecedented land reclamation project, nearly three times the size of Central Park. NYC Parks and AIA New York guides will provide insightful narration about cutting-edge landscape architecture and engineering, urban planning, and the industrial architecture and infrastructure of Staten Island’s North West shore.
This tour is operated in partnership with Classic Harbor Line and features special guest guide Laura Truettner, Manager for Park Development at Freshkills Park. Click here to register.
