When you're entrenched in the mountains of high-rise offices in midtown Manhattan, it's easy to forget that New York City is mainly made of water. When you reach the island's edges though, you're reminded of what the city is really made of. If you added up all of the city's rivers, bays, estuaries and channels it would be the sixth largest borough. It's thanks to these waterways that New York was able to experience such massive growth, as material goods were brought in from around the world. Now, as urban land becomes rare and precious, these waterways provide a much needed outdoor refuge for the city's inhabitants.
