Ray Gastil presents Beyond the Edge: New York's New Waterfront
Thursday, June 19, 2003
7:00 - 9:00 p.m.
Melville Gallery at South Street Seaport
213 Water Street in Manhattan
In the wake of September 11, 2001, and with the rising likelihood of
increased waterborne transit, the conversion of former industrial and
military installations to public uses, and the hosting of the 2012 Summer Olympics, New York City faces the monumental task of rethinking and redeveloping its waterfront. But how will this transformation take place, and what will it produce? In BEYOND THE EDGE: NEW YORK'S NEW WATERFRONT, RAY GASTIL presents a convincing case for inspired design in the revitalization of the city's waterfront, a vision that holds out the promise of reconnecting New Yorkers to their waterfront as a vital place of work and of public life.
Wine and refreshments. Admission is free($3 suggested donation).
