Dames on the Waterfront

Step aside boys, the ladies are taking over the West Harlem waterfront: Bonnie A. Harken of Nautilus International Development Consulting, Donna Walcavage of Donna Walcavage Landscape Architecture + Urban Design, and Barbara Wilks of W Architecture are the women in charge of reclaiming the West Harlem waterfront for recreational use, and connecting communities along the Hudson River. They are directing two major projects currently underway, Take Me to the River, an effort to build new piers and parks between W. 125th Street and Hamilton Heights; and the W. 125th St. Pier. They will join Savona Bailey-McClain of the West Harlem Art Fund and Nancy Welsh of Environmental Preservation Fund for an all-girl panel discussion at the Center for Architecture (536 LaGuardia Place, Tuesday, Sept. 27, 6-8 pm).
