As we continue to live with COVID-19, the health and safety of our communities remain our most important goal. City of Water Day events this year will continue to ensure the safety of all participants by adhering to all applicable public health guidelines relating to COVID-19.


Join us on Saturday, July 16 in celebrating the resilience of our NY-NJ Harbor!

Now in its 15th year, City of Water Day, is a free region-wide day organized by the Waterfront Alliance, the NY-NJ Harbor & Estuary Program, and other great partners to raise awareness about the dangers we all face from sea level rise and climate change, and to advocate for a climate resilient New York and New Jersey harbor.

The climate is changing, and so must we. City of Water Day aims to educate and inspire action to meet this challenge.

      On City of Water Day:

    • The Art at the BlueLine exhibition is back at the Seaport District this year. Artists will present their works at the future high tide line, or “BlueLine”, to highlight how sea level rise and coastal storms are impacting our city. These art installations will offer a lens into the realities of climate change, coastal resilience, waterfront access, and environmental justice.
    • Dozens of communities in New York and New Jersey will host their own In Your Neighborhood events that celebrate the importance of a resilient and equitably shared waterfront. From free kayaking to rowing to hands-on workshops, these independently-produced events offer community members opportunities to access and engage with their local waterfront.

    This year’s In Your Neighborhood theme centers on how the power of the creative arts can help us address the climate crisis. We want to create spaces where stewardship organizations and artists can explore and innovate as they engage the public about climate change and its impacts. For a limited number of participating organizations, HEP can provide funding support randing between $1,000-$4,000. To be considered for funding be sure to apply by June 8, 2022 and remember to note your request for funding in the space provided.
