Join the Department of City Planning and WXY to explore an urban waterfront transforming into an innovation district for industrial mixed use and resilient public open space.

This tour will highlight the industrial heritage of Long Island City and the changing demands on the neighborhoods. Leveraging the proximity of Cornell Tech, the emerging creative tech fields, and the existing light industrial sector, the remaining waterfront can serve as a place for job growth, affordable housing, and a critical link for public open space.
