Retrofitting urban buildings for flood risk
Retrofitting urban buildings for flood risk is one of New York City’s most complex planning challenges. Like other American coastal cities – but to an even greater degree given its size, density, and 520 miles of shoreline – NYC’s waterfront neighborhoods face significant challenges in adapting to increased coastal flood risks. This event panel is presented in conjunction with the related Retrofitting Buildings for Flood Risk report by NYC Department of City Planning, released October 8th, 2014.
