How many New Yorkers can brag about owning 57 acres of waterside property? Parks can. Rather than settle for a strip of land offering impressive views of the Manhattan and Brooklyn bridges, Parks filled the area with vibrant activity--building an amphitheater, bike paths, playgrounds, sports fields and courts, gardens, children's water play areas, and walking paths.

East Side Coastal Resiliency Project

The City of New York is proposing to construct the East Side Coastal Resiliency project, which is an integrated flood protection system that is intended to reduce coastal flooding and improve coastal and social resiliency along an approximately 2.4 mile stretch of Manhattan's East River waterfront.

On October 30, 2015, Parks, as SEQRA/CEQR Lead Agency, in conjunction with OMB, issued a Positive Declaration directing that a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) be prepared, and released a Draft Scope of Work to prepare an EIS for public review and comment through December 21, 2015.
