The NYC Department of City Planning (NYCDCP) has officially kicked off the planning stages for the next Comprehensive Waterfront Plan. Published every ten years, the plan aims at making New York City’s 520 miles of waterfront accessible, active, and resilient, providing a vision for the city’s waterfront for the next decade and beyond. 

Join us on this adaptation of AIANY’s Around Manhattan Architecture Boat Tour, which will feature special guest speakers Jay Valgora, AIA (Waterfront Management Advisory Board member and founder of STUDIO V Architecture), Claudia Herasme (Chief Urban Designer at NYCDCP), and Michael L. Marrella, AICP (Director of Waterfront and Open Space Planning at NYCDCP), who will collectively discuss waterfront planning efforts—past, current, and future—as we sail around NYC’s waterfront. AIANY Guide Arthur Platt, AIA, will fill in relevant architecture and infrastructure narration throughout.
