WFMMS is an interactive resource that provides data and tools needed to track, assess, and prioritize waterfront assets in New York City.

A 360° View of the NYC Waterfront

Designed and managed by NYCEDC’s Asset Management Design and Construction team, WFMMS was born from a need, following Hurricane Sandy, to better understand the current state and condition of the New York City waterfront—of 520 miles of cruise terminals, parks, piers, wastewater treatment plants, asphalt plants, bulkheads, and other assets that are vital to the city’s economy and livability.

This led to the development of a centralized online tool, using geospatial data and computer modeling, that allows a variety of stakeholders to create an account and access detailed maps, and other important data on the NYC waterfront.

By the Numbers


Miles of the NYC waterfront are viewable in WFMMS.

WFMMS is a robust tool that provides:

  • A “street view” from the water of the entire 520 miles of NYC waterfront
  • Access to important data related to assessments
  • Efficient tracking of waterfront infrastructure to ensure life safety issues and improvements are addressed quickly
  • An organized database of waterfront information

These features allow NYCEDC, city agencies, engineers, marine contractors, construction professionals, community stakeholders, and others to make better-informed decisions when prioritizing waterfront assets. Further, WFMMS enables greater interagency alignment, collaboration, and efficiency in the creation of capital and neighborhood plans.

Supporting a Sustainable City

Beyond its benefits and resources for our external partners, WFMMS is central to our own efforts on critical projects for a sustainable city. The system’s centralized database of inspection information allows NYCEDC to react more quickly, flexibly, and effectively in supporting critical City-led infrastructure projects and initiatives on the waterfront, including:

  • Responding before and after emergencies, such as recently accommodating the USNS Comfort at Manhattan Cruise Terminal
  • Transportation initiatives, such as NYC Ferry
  • Important flood mitigation projects, such as Interim Flood Protection, managed by OEM
  • Environmental initiatives, such as the Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4), which provides important guidelines for appropriate stormwater discharge
  • Identifying and performing structural rehabilitation work that ensures the safety of an extensive range of City assets
