Sunset Park’s waterfront remains one of the city’s largest industrial clusters. Scarred by the Gowanus Expressway and various noxious uses, the waterfront is now undergoing a renaissance centered on creative industries and artisanal manufacturing.

This talk will discuss how Sunset Park’s waterfront revitalization is a testing ground for Mayor de Blasio’s vision of an inclusive urbanism.

Join Ted Steinberg, Professor of Law and History at Case Western Reserve University, for a discussion of how an island estuary became one of the world’s most densely populated cities.

In his new book, Gotham Unbound: An Ecological History of New York, from Henry Hudson to Hurricane Sandy (Simon & Schuster, 2014), Steinberg examines the region’s transformation over three centuries through an ecological lens. He'll explain the origins of place names like the Meadowlands, and reveal a story of common rights and private property, land grants and landfills, salt marshes and wetlands, and the deep environmental importance of the points where land meets sea.
