Album Description:

South Brooklyn welcomes its first Eco Dock! The $1.1 million storm-resilient Eco Dock, at the 69th street pier in Bay Ridge, is the first in the city to provide both educational programming, as well as recreational boating opportunities. Its upper floating, concrete dock will accommodate a range of educational, sail and motor vessels and its lower floating, wooden dock will accommodate smaller and, when appropriate, human-powered craft. NYC Parks is partnering with the Metropolitan Waterfront Alliance to provide programming, which can include “floating classrooms” in environmental science, as well as educational programs in aquatic biology, water chemistry, water craft design, aquatic habitat monitoring, fishing instruction, and tidal observations. With lessons learned from Superstorm Sandy, the Bay Ridge Eco Dock was designed to be resilient to storm surges through reinforced fittings, additional pilings, and by increased heights of the piles, so that the dock will remain on its pilings in the event of an increase in sea level.
