Join the Waterfront Alliance on May 10th at 10am, for a presentation and conversation about climate change and New York City’s plans to prepare for its impacts. Enjoy beautiful views at the South Street Seaport (at Piers 16 and 17) where we will hear from Waterfront Alliance experts on climate change challenges facing New York City, how it is facing the future, and the role of many different audiences and sectors in this work. Topics will include sea level rise and major storms, climate change projections, measures to protect local communities, the role of advocacy, as well as legislation and a focus on systemic change.

The event will consist of an outdoor tour/discussion around Pier 16 starting at 10am (featuring shorter 10-minute walks between destinations), followed by moving inside at 11am for more in-depth discussion. The full program concludes at 12:00 noon where we will meet for lunch at Osteria Del Porto. If you wish to be included in the lunch, please email Herb Kaplan at
