Despite the rain, many celebrations of Red Hook’s resilience took place yesterday. We were excited to debut the first mural to beautify the Red Hook Interim Flood Protection Measures, which provide protection to the neighborhood from coastal flooding. Congratulations to 7-year-old Red Hook artist Ruba, who created the design “People I See in My Neighborhood!”
Five years ago, Hurricane Sandy highlighted our vulnerabilities from coastal storms and climate change. As the city took stock of the damage, it was clear we couldn’t just plan for ‘the next Sandy,’ but had to invest with an eye toward all future climate risks. Since then, the City has worked urgently to make bold and innovative investments in hurricane preparedness and resiliency on an unprecedented scale than ever before -- because the risks are greater than ever before. Five years later, we can say our city is safer and more resilient than it was - and we have much more to do before we’ll be satisfied.
