5/20 Waterfront Walks
New York City has 520 miles of waterfront—that’s longer than Miami, Boston, Los Angeles, and San Francisco combined! To celebrate the waterfront, the Department of City Planning is partnering with other agencies and organizations to host a series of free, public waterfront walks across all five boroughs, all happening on Sunday, May 20th (5/20). The goal of 5/20 is to highlight the diversity of NYC’s 520 mile waterfront, while engaging with community members to discuss its history and plans for the future. While each walk has its own lens of exploration, the overall themes of the event is how each of these waterfront spaces contribute to creating a more active, accessible, and resilient waterfront.
