The New Garden City

Designing New York City’s Evolving Waterfront Landscape

Since the 2007 launch of PlaNYC, New York City’s waterfront has undergone an incredible transformation from a dilapidated former industrial harbor to a teeming oasis, springing new economic and residential development in its wake. The scale of this unprecedented transformation underscores the trend for landscape to act a spring of regeneration and a stitch that links neighborhoods and communities.

The New Garden City will highlight the projects, partnerships, and actors that helped to facilitate this transformation, revealing this large scale evolution of the urban landscape through the lens of landscape design and architecture.
