In the middle of the 19th century, the East River and Hudson River waterfronts were much alike but today, they could not look more different. As the nature of shipping changed and New York City grew, one edge was rebuilt in the mid-20th century, the other at the turn of this century. Each waterfront was shaped by very different paradigms. The focus of this studio is to examine the underlying principles of these paradigms, to understand their qualities, strengths, and weaknesses, and to propose a new paradigm for 21st century waterfront communities. The report is divided into five sections focusing on: accessibility, infrastructure, affordability and mobility, and intensity.
