About Us

The Waterfront Navigator website was developed by the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYC EDC) with funding provided by a grant from Empire State Development. Core partners for this educational resource are:

  • U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
  • New York State Department of Environmental Conservation
  • New York State Department of State
  • New York City Department of City Planning

Our goal with this website is to consolidate information, advice, and resources from each partner agency into a single, one-stop resource for applicants. Our aim is to help you obtain the permits you need, understand the requirements of each agency involved, and include the right materials with your submission to ensure that your permit application is not delayed.

We have culled information from each of our partner agencies about the waterfront permitting process. We hope that you find the advice and information here valuable.


We welcome your comments and suggestions about how we can improve future versions of the Waterfront Navigator.¬†Email us:¬†[email protected]
