Climate Change Response

New York is a city of islands and water. Waterways are the city’s largest contiguous open spaces and are the connective tissue between boroughs. The water is, in effect, the sixth borough. As part of a new “blue network” of navigable and inhabitable spaces on the water, the mobile Veloaquadrome will open up neighborhoods to the waterways and make New York more livable and attractive. The Veloaquadrome is a place for public recreation, promoting health and providing a unique vantage point from which to take in the urban environment. Like all successful spaces of athletic recreation, it encourages safe, interactive, and healthy communities.
