All BWRC events this year will be offered both in-person and on Zoom. 

Look for our upcoming Breakfast Talks, our Evening Climate Speakers Series, and our all-day spring conference on offshore wind power. 




Hosted at CityTech, the Brooklyn Waterfront Research Center is an institutionally affiliated research and education center that advances interdisciplinary inquiry about one of Brooklyn’s most valuable but least understood assets: its waterfront.

Public Outreach

Learn more about the BWRC

The Brooklyn Waterfront Research Center functions as an incubator for new waterfront-related research and as a venue to bring students into the knowledge-creation process. Furthermore, it reaches beyond the walls of the college through its public events, conferences, web initiatives, and seminar programs. Through such means, it draws attention to key issues that affect Brooklyn’s waterfront communities and enables dialogue between key policymakers, experts, educators, and community leaders.
