Lower Manhattan Coastal Resiliency Project Kick Off: Meeting 2 of 2

Southbridge Towers

 This meeting will focus on the waterfront from the Brooklyn Bridge to the North end of Battery Park City.

The Lower Manhattan Coastal Resiliency (LMCR) project is underway. Starting this month, the City of New York is hosting the first of a series of public meetings to help shape the project’s priorities. Join us at the following public meetings to learn more about this important project to reduce coastal flood risk from Two Bridges to Battery Park City.

LMCR aims to reduce flood risk due to coastal storms and sea level rise from Manhattan’s Two Bridges neighborhood to Battery Park City. It intends to build the physical, social, and economic resiliency of the area by integrating flood protection into the community fabric through strengthening the City’s coastline while improving access to the waterfront and enhancing public spaces.
