The Knickerbocker Hotel is proud to announce our latest partnership with the Billion Oyster Project. As partners of Billion Oyster Project, we save our oyster shells from becoming landfill by donating them to oyster reef restoration efforts in New York Harbor.
Visit us on our rooftop, St. Cloud to join in on restoration efforts by simply ordering a round of oysters and enjoying your stay.
Why oysters? Did you know that New York Harbor was once home to 220,000 acres of oyster reefs? Or, that an adult oyster can filter up to 50 gallons of water a day? The historic evidence of oysters in New York Harbor, combined with the oyster’s reputation as an “ecosystem engineer”, drives us to return New York Harbor to its rightful place as an ecological treasure.
Visit Billion Oyster Project for more details on their oyster initiative.
