Upcoming Lecture: Lost Waterfronts of New York

Save the date! Armada artist Nathan Kensinger will give an illustrated lecture called “Lost Waterfronts of New York” at Proteus Gowanus Observatory on Friday, July 27, at 7pm. For more info and to purchase advanced tickets, visit Observatory.

In the last decade, large sections of New York City’s waterfront have been rezoned, parcelled off and handed over to developers. A new landscape of luxury condominiums has replaced the old sugar refineries, powerhouses, bungalows and docks that once lined New York’s shores. However, some vestiges of the historic waterfront remain, mainly in forgotten or off-limits neighborhoods like Bloomfield, Edgemere, New Dorp Beach and Hammels Wye. Join Nathan Kensinger as he shares his photographs documenting the changing waterfront.
