25 Selected Studies of the Harlem River over 35 years

May 14th, 2017 Posted in Define the Issues

The overarching vision for the Bronx waterfront of the Harlem River is a contiguous waterfront park.  This is a fundamental consensus embraced by several generations of city and state agencies, elected officials, and their constituents. It has been outlined in some 25 plans that been developed, refined, and re-issued — all with public participation over the same number of years.   While it is understood today that this means future development of waterfront itself must be primarily recreational, nonetheless, information about water-quality is needed to post advisories, determine the feasibility of bringing people to the river, and increase biodiversity.
