NYC Walks 2: East River by Ferry

This tour is now sold out, but you can join the waitlist to be notified if a ticket becomes available.

NYC Walks: A Guide to New Architecture (Prestel, 2019) is a new guidebook by architecture critic and New York City historian John Hill of ten walking tours that highlight the best of New York City’s contemporary architecture. In celebration of the book’s publication, Open House New York and John Hill have organized a three-part series of tours that explore areas of the city with some of the city’s most notable new buildings and landscapes.

Using NYCFerry, East River by Ferry journeys along both sides of the East River to explore how the city’s center of gravity has shifted eastwards over the past decade. The tour will look at projects in Manhattan, Queens, and Roosevelt Island to consider how the decline of New York’s industrial waterfront gave rise to new residential and commercial development along the river’s edge, made possible in part by decades-long efforts by the city and environmental organizations to restore the river’s decimated ecosystem
