City Of Water Day Makes Its 2021 Return With A Climate Change-Focused Art Show

This fall will mark nine years since Superstorm Sandy, and New Yorkers are still working on preparing for the next storm. The annual City of Water Day on Saturday, July 10, is emphasizing the risks posed to the waterfront by climate change, and the threat of continued climate inaction. 

The event is exploring the BlueLine — the projected future high-tide line in 2100 — to “raise awareness about the risk we all face from sea-level rise and climate change, and champion a climate resilient New York and New Jersey harbor.” City of Water Day will promote socially-distant outdoor and virtual attractions. But the big event this year is a real-world art exhibit: ”Art at the BlueLine” at the Seaport, from July 14 through August 2, featuring installations that provide “a lens into the realities of climate change, coastal resilience, waterfront access and environmental justice.”

City of Water Day, celebrating its fourteenth year, is organized by the Waterfront Alliance. Virtual and live events will also be held across the city.
