This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Harbors are like Batman, they need a Robin to compliment them. New York Harbor, the Gotham of global harbors, has St. George, but over the years this harbor has lost its southern end in the mist. Through the passion of the community and a panoply of developers and ferry companies, a world-class, iconic destination has been formulated for the southern end of the harbor, finally creating an amazing venue that will be a global showcase of technology, entertainment and design, anchored by the largest observation wheel in the world.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
