Mid-term presentation for MIT Site Planning Studio on Harlem River Waterfront Accessibility study. The presentation explores the possibility of using existing, beautiful infrastructure as programmable spaces -- resulting in possibilities like a temporary deactivation of the 145th St Bridge for a food event, an outdoor movie night on Pier 5, and tango on the High Bridge. Authors of the document are Albert Ching, Stephen Kennedy, and Laura Manville
