Jane’s Walk

CIVITAS Reimagines the Waterfront from 96th to 114th Street on Manhattan’s East Side

Join CIVITAS as we lead a Jane’s Walk along the East River Esplanade. Emma Bologna, Executive Director, and Maura Smotrich, Esplanade Project Manager, will lead a tour exploring 3 nodes identified in the newly released CIVITAS Vision Plan for the East River Esplanade prepared in conjunction with Mathews Nielsen Landscape Architects. The tour will meet at 96th Street and begin the walk by discussing the proposed new gateway to the Esplanade at that location. Boat storage and access are integral parts of this concept. The tour will proceed up the Esplanade to Pier 107, where the group will consider both the Pier’s temporary re-opening and long term reconstruction. Discussion of the proposed living shoreline in East Harlem and the CIVITAS collaboration with the Harbor School and Harbor Foundation with regard to this node are also on the agenda.
