On the Waterfront

Andrew Rice, writing for the New York Times, chronicles development plans for the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn, New York.

During the height of New York’s real estate boom multiple investors proposed an apartment complex, parks, cafes, boathouses, etc. Today these proposals are on hold. In the meantime, residents and civic groups are thinking about the future of the Gowanus Canal in new ways.


Kellie Patrick Gates filed this piece for PlanPhilly on the latest updated plan for the Central Delaware waterfront, which may or may not include nesting perches for osprey and eagles.  How cool is that?
