The Waterfront Alliance inspires and effects resilient, revitalized, and accessible coastlines for all communities.
What We Do
Whether we live, work, or play where the water meets the land, we have the shared responsibility to ensure our waterfront is accessible for boating and recreation, ecologically healthy, resilient to climate change, and a source of good-paying jobs. We are at the forefront of building consensus and influencing waterfront policy and planning in New York and New Jersey through providing public testimony and producing white papers. Our programs include serving as an early advocate for five-borough ferry service, building neighborhood docks for educational and recreational use, and helping communities create better waterfront design using our Waterfront Edge Design Guidelines.Through our annual Waterfront Conference, City of Water Day, and Harbor Camp, we bring together and open the eyes of today's and tomorrow's generations of waterfront stewards.
