Historically New Yorkers have thought about the East River as the city’s edge, but it is poised to become the city’s new center. With new development, public space and transportation sprouting up on both sides of the river, proposals for further intensification, and pressing challenges of affordable housing and sea level rise, the East River presents a series of compelling new challenges. This panel will explore this fascinating future, with an eye towards what the River offers New York as a place to live, work and play.
