New York City has 520 miles of waterfront—that’s longer than Miami, Boston, Los Angeles, and San Francisco combined! The Department of City Planning is engaged in a range of initiatives and programs to improve the waterfront and its resiliency. This includes the Comprehensive Waterfront Plan, the Waterfront Revitalization Program, Resilient Neighborhoods, and Flood Resiliency Zoning.
5/20 Waterfront Walks
To celebrate the waterfront, DCP is partnering with other agencies and organizations to host a series of free, public waterfront events across all five boroughs, from Saturday May 18th - Saturday May 25th. These adventures highlight the diversity of NYC’s waterfront while engaging community members to discuss its history and plans for the future. While each experience has its own lens of exploration, the overall theme of the event is how each of these waterfront spaces contribute to creating a more active, accessible, and resilient waterfront. This year, 5/20 marks the beginning of DCP’s public outreach for the next Comprehensive Waterfront Plan. We hope to see you there and talk about what you envision for NYC’s waterfront.
This interactive map is designed to help NYC residents and visitors locate and learn more about the diverse mix of publicly-accessible waterfront space available throughout the City. You can also learn where specific amenities are available, locate boating and in-water recreation opportunities, and get more information on how these spaces are created and maintained.
