When the elevated highway now known as the FDR cut through the South Street Seaport in 1954, it had a profound impact on the feel and flow of the area. OHNY invites you to join WXY Architecture + Urban Design’s Adam Lubinsky and artist and designer Yeju Choi on a walking tour that will explore the proposed site of the Brooklyn Bridge Beach, part of the East River Blueway Plan, and the pop-up participatory installation Catch — & — Release, part of the Design/Relief initiative by AIGA New York, to understand how social and infrastructural strategies for addressing the void created by the FDR can work hand-in-hand to reconnect the neighborhood with its waterfront.
