LOWER EAST SIDE — Public kayaking, freshwater wetlands and a new beach could be on the way to Manhattan's East Side, thanks to an updated East River Blueway Plan that was unveiled Thursday evening.
The proposal, presented by Manhattan Borough President Scott M. Stringer and Assemblyman Brian Kavanagh at a public meeting at the Cooper Union, is the latest step in an effort to reimagine the waterfront between East 38th Street and the Brooklyn Bridge as a refuge from city living. The Blueway would create public leisure spots and amenities while also including measures to protect the waterfront from extreme weather.
