Supporting Free Kayaking in Hudson River Park

In response to the Hudson River Park Trust’s recent request for proposals for several of the park’s public boathouses, I wrote to encourage the Trust to maintain free public kayaking programming at Piers 26 and 96. In a city with limited opportunities for people to interact with nature in a meaningful and healthy way, I urged the Trust to continue to make kayaking available to New Yorkers and visitors regardless of economic status. Please see my letter below.
