The North Shore of Staten Island boasts spectacular harbor views—and a concentration of mega projects. Nearly $2 billion has been invested in new real estate, including a new mall, an observation wheel, and hundreds of units of housing.

Join this walking tour of the Sonic Gates sound sculpture series along the waterfront, a creative placemaking project developed jointly by the Design Trust and Staten Island Arts with the community as part of our Future Culture initiative.

You'll learn how the local community and developers are planning for their future during this changing time, and how they are working to preserve the area's uniqueness and strengthen its connection to its waterfront.
