Working at the water's edge

One of the challenges for envisioning better pedestrian and bike linkages in the Raritan Basin is to make meaningful linkages with the Raritan River and other key waters in our area. So it if informative to peek at solutions that others have tried on bodies of water that admittedly behave differently and feel differently too.

Canadian Landscape Architect Claude Cormier has some urban waterfront projects that are different than what we see around here: Quai de l'Horloge and Sugar Beach.

And while Washington DC's new National Harbor project may be a bit cheesy, it includes some basic ingredients to consider.
