Five years ago, Hurricane Sandy blasted through New York City, uprooting neighborhoods, flooding buildings, streets, and subways, leaving many without power, food, or clean water. Join the Tishman Environment and Design Center at The New School and the Stanton Building Task Force of the Sara D. Roosevelt Park Coalition to realize community-engaged prototypes for social resiliency in an underutilized Park building. Project overview and breakouts with community partners, faculty, students, and all interested in local climate action.
