Expanding The Special Harlem River Waterfront District

Posted by bzapp

The South Bronx landscape and Harlem River Waterfront has, for years, been a diamond in the rough. With its beautiful waterfront access cut off by flood resilient structures and specialized restrictions, a city plan has been set in motion to provide open spaces and direct access to the water and surrounding land. The Waterfront Access Plan addresses the difficulties in implementing walkways and public areas around roadblocks like local bridges and roadways as well as flood zones. During a workshop with residents and the Department of City Planning, several committees put together scenarios in which they would like to see their community improved through this process. Now, with a survey to gather even more opinions, it’s time to let your voice be heard! Whether you want an active, bustling area, or a quiet space to relax, learn about the project here and then join the virtual workshop and fill out this survey by December 2nd to impact the future of the waterfront and the South Bronx community.
