One Billion Oysters in New York Harbor
Through our official partnership with the Billion Oyster Project, a non-profit organization which works to restore the oyster reefs of the New York Harbor, we take our commitment to local sustainability seriously. Donations through our partnership are generated by in-room guest engagements, with offerings like reusable water bottles and custom designed oyster-inspired gifts for sale. We also include an optional donation at room checkout, with literature about the impact of our sustainability initiative and what it means for our city’s harbor.

Billion Oyster Project’s Vision
BOP envisions a future in which the New York Harbor is the center of a rich, diverse, and abundant estuary. The communities that surround this complex ecosystem have helped construct it, and in return benefit from it, with endless opportunities for work, education, and recreation. The harbor is a world-class public space, well used and well cared for—our Commons.
