On the Water's Edge

Sunday, November 13, 2011 - 3:00pm

The East River shoreline in Western Queens is one of the few major stretches of waterfront in New York City where community access is not blocked by a highway or railroad.  As industry has moved out of the area, issues around what to do with the shoreline remain.  In a panel discussion bringing together a noted planner/architect, a community activist, and two artists involved in The Noguchi Museum/Socrates Sculpture Park project, Civic Action: A Vision for Long Island City,  Diana Balmori, Katie Ellman, Natalie Jeremijenko, and George Trakas will discuss the reinvention of Long Island City’s post-industrial urban waterfront.  Moderated by Carter Craft, Principal of Outside New York.
