A Waterfront Platform For An Island City

Five steps to a great harbor.

In the wake of Sandy, New York City needs to strengthen its waterfront. We envision a future with convenient ferry transit, a resilient waterfront design, multi-use waterfront docks, an active maritime industry, and an NYC Department of the Waterfront. 



We call on the next administration and city leadership to commit to the MWA Waterfront Platform for New York City.
