On the Waterfront
As New York City builds up its waterfront, adding new towers, mixed-income housing, mixed-use developments, and parks along the rivers across all five boroughs, how do we protect our shoreline from future catastrophes like Superstorm Sandy? “From Ports to Parks: New York’s Waterfront Wager” answers this question, addressing Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s most lasting and visible legacy. The article, by our own Dr. Tami Hausman, appears in the Fall 2013 issue of Oculus magazine. Oculus is the quarterly journal published by the New York Chapter of the American Institute of Architects.
