NEW YORK CITY REVISES EAST SIDE COASTAL RESILIENCY PROJECT

New York City plans to reduce flood risk along Manhattan’s East River waterfront by raising all 40 acres of East River Park at the water’s edge instead of building protective barriers inland as originally proposed to the community.   The City expects the change will cut construction by six months, providing flood protection prior to the 2023 hurricane season.   The City will add $1B to the $760M already allocated, $338 of which is HUD funding.  The proposed revision is subject to approval by community boards, HUD, and city regulators.   The plan has generated numerous news articles>>
