The Harlem River is an eight-mile-long tidal strait that runs past some of the most densely populated neighborhoods in New York City. However, most people living near the river have no access to its shoreline, a place that has been described as “New York’s Forgotten Waterfront.” Join Untapped New York and photographers Duane Bailey-Castro and Nathan Kensinger for a virtual experience that will explore this under-appreciated site.

In this talk on October 12th, Bailey-Castro and Kensinger will highlight their photographs of Harlem River bridges, parks, and shoreline, images taken over the course of a decade of exploration. They will discuss issues of access, transportation, and pollution while sharing their images of the historic architecture and new green spaces that line this fascinating waterway.
