Hey everyone,

I am pretty new to arcgis and have a question on how to do something. I will do my best trying to explain it. Included is a screenshot to help explain.

Essentially am trying to find areas which are located on the waterfront of a certain size. The appropriate areas are the purple areas (open areas).

Using intersect (output type=line) I found the potential waterfronts. Now, from that line I would like to find purple areas connected to the water which meet my requirement of being at least a certain size wide and deep. If dimensions do not work then a certain size of open area.

Any ideas on how I can go about to find this? Thank you very much
