Last year Hurricane Sandy caused as much as $68 billion dollars in damage. Many of the areas hit are still recovering. During Sandy millions lost power. Many lost their homes. The outcome was devastating.
A year later the Greater New York area still has plenty to consider. How can we prepared? How is climate changing making hurricanes more dangerous? How can we collaborate within our communities?
On Friday November 8th we will gather at Hack Manhattan and host a roundtable discussion about climate change, coastal flooding, placemaking, and share Post-Sandy rebuilding ideas. The discussion will be facilitated by several guest speakers (TBA) and guests are encouraged to participate.
After a short discussion we will take a walk to the Hudson river and discuss the geographic changes that have occurred along West 14th Street. Please join us at 6 pm on November 8th! We look forward to your input!
This event is free. Drinks are complimentary.
