6:30pm — 8:30pm
Explore the diverse waterfront of New York City on this harbor cruise focusing on resiliency, recovery, and the city’s reopening in the wake of the pandemic. Andrew Gustafson of Turnstile Tours will explore the past, present, and future of industry, ecology, recreation, and development on the waterfront.
The tour will cruise the shoreline of Manhattan and Brooklyn, hitting iconic sights like the Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge, and the Manhattan skyline, but we will also visit the working waterfront in places like Sunset Park, Red Hook, and the Brooklyn Navy Yard. During the pandemic, these areas were vital to the city – manufacturers produced critical medical supplies, logistics centers powered e-commerce, and parks provided much-needed outdoor respite. As we face future challenges of climate change and sea level rise, the waterfront will remain on the frontlines, and we will look at the innovative ways we are adapting for resiliency and a diversity of waterfront uses and users.
