MANHATTAN WATER-BOUND– 308 pg, second edition. Syracuse Univ. Press.

 

 Shorewalker Ann Buttenwieser’s fascinating account of New York Island’s waterfront from the 17th century to the present is a comprehensive and well-written account of the many changes that have taken place since the Dutch West Indies Company first built piers on the East River. Ann examines how events like the container revolution, the collapse of the Westway project and the recent rise in environmental consciousness has changed NYC’s waterfront. Interesting and little-known facets of New York’s history, like Bellevue hospital’s floating sun deck, are brought to life with detailed photographs and descriptions. In fact, Ann has recently been involved in bringing another floating swimming pool to New York, see www.floatingpool.org. The book is available from Syracuse University Press.

Ms. Buttenwieser’s engrossing history complements Cy A Adler’s WALKING MANHATTAN’S RIM: THE GREAT SAUNTER, which is available to Shorewalkers for only $10. Visit GreenEaglePress.org for details

THE HISTORY AND ACHIEVEMENTS OF THE SHOREWALKERS

THE HISTORY AND ACHIEVEMENTS OF THE SHOREWALKERS

The following is from the current draft of the history of Shorewalkers, being written in celebration of our 25th anniversary celebration. Pick up your copy at the party on December 1!

BEGINNINGS: PIONEERING WALKS ALONG A CHANGING URBAN WATERFRONT

The Shorewalkers was formed in 1982 after a few curious New Yorkers set out to explore the waterfronts and shorelines in the greater New York Metropolitan region. In the 1980's, large sections of the shoreline were inaccessible and several piers were inhabited by homeless people who set up shacks in their darkened recesses. To Shorewalkers, the City’s waterfront was, and is, a breath of fresh salt air, exciting, scary at times, and ever-changing.

"The Shorewalkers intend to hike the entire coast of NYC..." read the introduction in the first, brief Shorewalkers’ newsletter. The Village Voice and other local weeklies listed our first monthly walks. A few brave, curious souls came along to explore the virtually unknown waterfront.

HISTORY AND VISION

HISTORY AND VISION

During the past 22 years, Shorewalkers created waterfront hiking around the NY area, and in the process, improved the health and stamina of thousands of walkers, as we led them where they had never been before – sometimes cul-de-sacs and dusty dead end paths.

 Shorewalkers is dedicated to protecting open space and scenic trails for all to enjoy. We lead over 100 free, guided hikes each year. Volunteers have donated over 10,000 hours to improving the environment and showing people where to walk in nature.

Our map of the 56-mile Batt-To-Bear Trail (Battery to Bear Mountain) is free on our website. Two guide books by Shorewalkers' President Cy Adler, Walking Manhattan’s Rim, & Walking the Hudson, Batt-To-Bear are acknowledged as unique, and in demand.

HARLEM RIVER VALLEY MAP/GUIDE PUBLISHED JANUARY 2007. We have created a 4-color map guide which gives details of the parks, historic sights and schools and bridges in the area. Now we seek help with printing and distribution of the map. Help distribute the map and develop support for the Grand Harlem River Park.

Join Shorewalkers; explore the city around its edges, meet new friends; help us conserve our parks and greenways; help develop new places to walk in nature.

Membership is still only $20 per year.
