Join SCAPE, the NYS Governor’s Office of Storm Recovery, and NYC Parks on a waterfront tour of Conference House Park and the future site of the Living Breakwaters project. Nans and Pippa will take walk the site and explain the project goals and design components as they relate to the neighborhood of Tottenville, its rich water-based history, and the need to create resiliency for the future.
The tour is part of a larger event “NYC 520,” organized by NYC Department of City Planning to celebrate the 520 miles of NYC’s waterfront on May 20.
The Living Breakwaters project is being designed to reduce coastal risk, enhance aquatic ecosystems, and foster community stewardship and resilience. Initially developed by SCAPE for the Rebuild by Design Competition, the project is being implemented by GOSR and funded by HUD through Community Development Block Grant- Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) funding. Check out the latest project overview video for Living Breakwaters, featuring Staten Island’s Deputy Borough President Ed Burkeft.
