Take two minutes for the Street of Ships!
In the attached survey, The New York City Economic Development Corporation asks input for its design of the East River Esplanade. The deadline for submission has been extended through this weekend.
Save Our Seaport notes that in this survey there is no mention of maritime use along what was once New York’s “Street of Ships.”
It takes one minute to fill out the survey, another minute to fill in the “other” blanks under “What enhancements would you like…” and “What words best describe how the redesigned…” in order to advocate for maritime use. Fill in any other “other” you find appropriate. Maritime accommodation needs to be designed into the waterfront, not added on as a cosmetic after-thought.
