Building Capital: To The Bronx—and Around

Top deck of a boat in NY harbor, with the Brooklyn Bridge in the background. The sun is about to set over the city skyline.

Andrew Gustafson of Turnstile Tours will led a tour circumnavigating Manhattan—a first for OHNY! highlighting capital projects, housing, and industrial development that are shaping neighborhoods and shorelines along the East, Harlem, and Hudson Rivers. Passing by waterfront neighborhoods in the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Queens the tour revealed the stories behind the surge of development and investment in these communities. 

With over 500 miles of waterfront, New York’s harbors are home to a variety of projects and places that generate economic, environmental, and cultural value for the city. From community land trusts to controversial rezoning and from resiliency improvements to environmental remediation, the tour discussed areas of investment along the waterfront while offering breathtaking views of the city skyline. 

Building Capital: To the Bronx—and Around is part of Building Capital: The Value of Place, a multi-year series exploring how different types of capital—including financial, cultural, and community capital—combine to shape quality of place and quality of life across the five boroughs and how these intersecting systems of capital can reverse legacies of disinvestment. This program is made possible with support from the National Endowment for the Arts and Bloomberg Philanthropies.

AIA CES credit (2.5 LU) is pending for this program.
