We are very pleased to announce that A Movable Bridge has partnered with the Metropolitan Waterfront Alliance to help make their vision a reality. Through the work of MWA and its Alliance Partners, the waters of New York Harbor will become cleaner and more accessible to a wide range of users, from recreational boats to ferries, tugboats to canoes and kayaks, those who swim to those who fish. Residents and visitors to the area will no longer be cut off from the waterfront and the water but will find numerous opportunities to use the water for fun and for transportation.

Speak up for town docks, more marinas, recreational boating, rowing and paddling, access to the waterfront and the water, in- and on-water activities, connecting schoolchildren with the waterfront… whatever floats your boat (so to speak).
