See City of Water

City of Water

Given global warming, New York may someday really be a city of water and Brooklyn a borough of the same thing. However, in this case City of Water refers to a new documentary about the future of New York's waterfront. There's a premiere for the documentary, on which the Metropolitan Waterfront Alliance and the Municipal Art Society have been collaborating, on Thursday (6/21) at 6:30PM. It will take place at Pier 2, which is on Furman Street. According to an article in Metro last week:
The film features interviews with Deputy Mayor Dan Doctoroff about the city’s “major effort to open the waterfront” and how development on “every inch” of it will make it unrecognizable 10 years from now. U.S. Rep. Nydia Velasquez voiced concerns about “the big rush to reclaim” the waterfront, asked who it’s being reclaimed for.
The screening is free. You can read more about the documentary and find directions to Pier 2 here.
