Activating Staten Island's Beachfront


What’s your vision for the East and South Shores of Staten Island?

NYCEDC is looking for proposals that include amenities, events, development, open space improvements, services, and designs to better activate the public beachfronts, parks, open spaces, trails, and historic buildings of Staten Island's East and South Shores. Ideas that can be implemented by early summer 2014 are strongly encouraged, as well as concepts focused on a more long-term or comprehensive vision.

Our goal for the Staten Island Beachfront is:

  • To leverage existing assets and generate new uses that will appeal to locals and visitors and stimulate economy recovery for the surrounding residential and business communities
  • Advance the community resiliency initiatives from Mayor Bloomberg’s Special Initiative for Rebuilding and Resiliency’s “A Stronger, More Resilient New York” report.
