On the Water’s Edge
The Noguchi Museum (9-01 33rd Rd., Queens)
Included with $10 museum admission
The East River shoreline in Western Queens is one of the few major stretches of waterfront in New York City where community access is not blocked by a highway or railroad. As industry has moved out of the area, issues around what to do with the shoreline remain. In a panel discussion bringing together a noted planner/architect, a community activist, and two artists involved in The Noguchi Museum/Socrates Sculpture Park project, Civic Action: A Vision for Long Island City, Diana Balmori, Katie Ellman, Natalie Jeremijenko, and George Trakas will discuss the reinvention of Long Island City’s post-industrial urban waterfront. Moderated by Carter Craft, Principal of Outside New York.
