ABOUT

The Tideland Institute connects New Yorkers to our harbor by building on-water opportunities for physical access, celebration, and creative engagement.

We believe that vibrant waterways are good for both people and our environment. Vibrant means an extension of the city - a place where diverse industry, recreation, and culture all coexist. Vibrant also means that we are using our harbor as the place to do this work -- the work of creating and imagining the possibilities of being a coastal city.

At the Tideland Institute we build infrastructure: a floating library and public docks. We create events and experiences: celebrations, workshops, boat-in concerts, and opportunities for stakeholders to form community. We also share resources through grants, residencies, and technical support so diverse voices can influence the harbor's future.
