Lower East Side Waterfront Alliance
For almost 60 years Two Bridges Neighborhood Council has had at the heart of its mission the goal of improving the quality of life for the residents of the Lower East Side. For more than a decade, our advocacy efforts have turned toward the waterfront, working with the city to explore ways to provide recreational access to the waterfront for the first time in history.
The Lower East Side Waterfront Alliance, a growing alliance of neighborhood organizations, concerned residents, property owners, tenant associations, professional social, health and educational institutions, and others, is committed to the economic, environmental, and social sustainability of the East River Waterfront along the Two Bridges neighborhood, Corlear’s Hook and East River Park to serve the adjacent Lower East Side & Chinatown communities.
Our goal is to work together to become active stewards of the ongoing redevelopment of the waterfront and its future use. The Lower East Side Waterfront Alliance members are working on many projects to bring attention to the East River Waterfront, including the Esplanade & Greenway, and Pier 42 and its possibilities. These include Paths to Pier 42 , a project to activate the waterfront through temporary art installations and events.
