Hamilton Madison House, Lower East Side

The BIG Team invited you to come and brainstorm how the Lower East Side can tailor its programs, functions, and opportunities that build off of needed costal protection infastructure!

Project Proposal: The Big ‘U’ proposes a protective system around Manhattan from West 54th street south to The Battery and up to East 40th street: 8 continuous miles of low-lying geography that comprise an incredibly dense, vibrant, and vulnerable urban area. How can we combine the need for large-scale protective infrastructure with meaningful community engagement and an enhanced public waterfront?
