NYC waterfront panel discussions

CUNY’s Institute for Sustainable Cities is hosting a four-part series of free public seminars starting this Wednesday, February 24th.  Turning the Tide: New York’s Waterfront in Transition aims to address topics and issues related to the City’s relationship with its coastline and to review its history and future of waterfront development.  The City’s waterfront has been its most contentious and most transformed frontier over the past ten years; with panelists from the Bronx River Alliance, the New York Restoration Project, Sustainable South Bronx and the Departments of Parks & Recreation and City Planning, this should be an interesting and active set of conversations.  Registration is recommended–space is limited.

Wed. Feb. 24, 2010: “Opening Out Towards the Water”– The Big Picture
Wed. March 17, 2010: Waterfront Parks: Old, New, Green, Blue
Wed. April 7, 2010: Seizing Opportunities: Waterfront Works in Progress
Wed. April 28, 2010: Reviving the Estuary: Science, Politics, and Education
