About The East River Blueway Plan

The Office of Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer in collaboration with the Office of New York State Assemblymember Brian Kavanagh and other partners, with funding provided by the New York State Department of State, has commissioned a team led by WXY Architecture + Urban Design to develop the East River Blueway Plan, a community- based waterfront planning initiative. The project will consider Manhattan’s East River waterfront between the Brooklyn Bridge and East 38th Street. This stretch of Manhattan’s shoreline faces challenges that prevent greater waterfront public access.

The East River Blueway Plan will be the foundation for an interconnected network of waterfront sites. This network will integrate recreational activities and connect neighborhoods to the waterfront. Our work will include visioning; feasibility of locating on-water sites; design and costs; and implementation and campaign strategies for the East River Blueway.
