Last year, waterfront stakeholders formed the Harlem River Working Group to work toward restoring the Harlem River; reconnecting the waterfront with the people; recreating the water’s edge; and reinvigorating in-the-water recreational and commercial activities. This year’s conference will map places of interest along the river’s edge; advocate for sensitive area status for the Harlem River; review the river’s past; examine the river’s future; and discuss the State of the Sewers.  Our goal will be to create a permanent organization for the Harlem River.   Breakout groups will organize.  Refreshments will be served. The public is invited to attend this free event.
