MAYOR DEBLASIO’S FLOOD PROTECTION: WHAT IS IT AND HOW WILL IT AFFECT OUR COMMUNITIES?

The $10 Billion Question(s)?

THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT.  JOIN US ON LIVESTREAM: https://bit.ly/2oPPJdP

Mayor Bill deBlasio proposes extending the waterfront from the Seaport to Battery Park up to 500 feet into the East River at a cost of up to $10 billion: if done right, this proposal can integrate benefits such as open space, affordable housing, and job creation into a plan for flood protection. If done wrong, however, the ramifications of our choices will last hundreds of years.

Join us in a public discussion of what should be considered as a co-benefit of flood protection.
