City of Water Documentary Shown Tonight

The Metropolitan Waterfront Alliance and the Municipal Art Society of New York are proud to announce the Fall screening series of our new documentary film about the future of New York’s waterfront, City of Water, continues at venues throughout the city through November. Screenings are free and open to the public, and a full list of screenings is at see

Two years in the making, City of Water explores the aspirations of public officials, environmentalists, academics, community activists, recreational boaters and everyday New Yorkers for a diverse, vibrant waterfront at a time when the shoreline is changing faster than at any other time in New York’s history. The documentary features interviews with Deputy Mayor Daniel Doctoroff, US Representative Nydia Velazquez, MacArthur Prize-winner Majora Carter, author Phillip Lopate, Sandy Hook Pilots Captain Andrew McGovern and many others, and includes footage from Jamaica Bay, the Brooklyn Navy Yard, and many other places on the waterfront.
