About this site

Welcome to Project R.I.S.E., Peconic Baykeeper's  community science initiative to document long-term climate impacts and coastal change in the Peconic Estuary Watershed. Please help support this project by submitting your photos each time you visit this site!

New Suffolk Waterfront is located on 2.5 acres of waterfront on the Peconic Bay, in the quiet hamlet of New Suffolk. During the 1800s and early 20th century, this site was busy commercial port especially for the oyster and scallop industry and also served as a a test site for US Navy submarines. The Waterfront is now owned and managed by a non-profit, the New Suffolk Waterfront Fund . The Fund preserves, protects, provides recreational and educational activities and ensures public access to this unique and scenic site.
