It’s difficult to choose a single place that represents The Trust’s efforts on the waterfront, but the stretch of the East River from Astoria to Dumbo is a good starting point.

When an investment banker, Milton Puryear, founded the Brooklyn Greenway Initiative to connect bike paths instead of expanding the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway, he, too, got support from the Trust’s environmental funds.
