Located in New York, the waterfront has shown tremendous improvement, in the last 5 years. Kayakers, can enjoy paddling along the Reef Balls, and the Bike Trail along the waterfront is claimed to be the best in America. Everyone should note the planting of grasses along the sea wall. “It’s Beautiful, not what I expected to see in New York” Jim McFarlane
The environmental and social benefits are clear: Continuity of the corridor improves not only human free time, but also the ecosystem and the river’s quality. Artificial “reef balls” were arranged along the river in order to offer a better habitat for the fish, giving back a sense of additional environmental justice to all users — humans and animals alike.”
