City of Water Day
The 15th annual City of Water Day returns to the shores of the metropolitan region on Saturday, July 16, 2022. A celebration of the waters that surround us, and an opportunity to learn about the current and future impacts of climate change and sea level rise, City of Water Day is organized by the Waterfront Alliance, the NY-NJ Harbor & Estuary Program (HEP), and many other partners. From boat rides to kayaking, from water quality workshops to birdwatching walks, City of Water Day activities are free and open to all. Underscoring the importance of a resilient and equitably shared waterfront, dozens of shoreline communities in New York and New Jersey will produce satellite In Your Neighborhood events on July 16, City of Water Day. Find an activity In Your Neighborhood by visiting cityofwaterday.org.
Efforts to raise awareness about the waters around us and the impacts of climate change continue with Art at the BlueLine, a free, outdoor climate art exhibition in Lower Manhattan’s Seaport, opening Saturday, July 16. Matthew López-Jensen, Sarah Nelson Wright and Edrex Fontanilla, and Mary Mattingly (and contributing artists) will present three art installations at the future high tide line, or “BlueLine.” The works of art aim to illuminate the effects of sea level rise and coastal storms on the region.
