Abstract: The borough of New York City seeks to expand the Manhattan Waterfront Greenway to create a continuous 32-mile alternative transportation route and network of parks around the island. One of the remaining gaps in the Greenway is the area between East 38th and East 60th Streets. My design addresses a half-mile portion of this gap, from East 38th-48th Streets. My design integrates with the existing infrastructure of the Greenway, provides a diverse array of passive and active recreational and educational spaces to the East Side, and reduces the demand on the municipal stormwater management system by treating stormwater runoff locally through the use of constructed wetlands.
