Coastal Renaissance

The Renaissance of coastal Manhattan is happening! The S.St. Seaport area is going through some major renovations, including a nook called the Dossier Outpost, a collection of shipping containers to house pop-up shops and rotating artists, and a “lawn” to host movie screenings, workshops, daytime loungers and food truck eaters.

Dossier Outpost has arranged a water photo exhibit by Skye Parrott on view now and an urban surf lifestyle market curated by Smith + Holland on the way.

These photos are by John Suhar, a nice fellow from Wisconsin, newly in NY, with the patience to capture the sweet moments others breeze past. Learn more and reach John at www.johnsuharphotography.com

Rockaway Beach Cleanup

The beach seems to gather the best of NY, especially when there’s a beach cleanup or dune rebuilding project. People that care about the local environment…in a laid back (let’s go surfing after volunteering kinda) way.

Here are some photos from last weekend’s beach cleanup with Surfrider, Loomstate and Skraptacular. The next one will be on the 14th, followed by an after party hosted by Barefoot Wines. RSVP – beachrescue2014.com

If you or your company would like to get involved in a beach cleanup or similar project e-mail volunteercoordinator@nyc.surfrider.org.
