What does it mean to save a Neighbourhood?

Publisher/s

New York Times Michael Kimmelman

Abstract

Nearly a decade after the devastation of Hurricane Sandy, which destroyed piers and damaged riverside social housing projects, residents of Lower Manhattan are still vulnerable to floods.

Michael Kimmelman, The Times’s architecture critic, explores the nine-year effort to redesign Lower Manhattan in the wake of the hurricane, and the design and planning challenges that have made progress incremental.

He goes inside a fight over how to protect the neighbourhood in the future — revealing why renewal in the face of climate disaster is so complicated.

Approx 48minute podcast.
