Design challenge: The Harlem Edge/Cultivating Connections competition will explore the redevelopment of the decommissioned Department of Sanitation marine transfer station located in the Hudson River at 135th Street. The site offers the opportunity to engage the local Harlem community with the waterfront, and echoes recent efforts by New York City to reclaim the waterfront for non-industrial use, as included Department of City Planning in its Vision 2020, the Comprehensive Waterfront Action Plan for New York City.
