“…the single most important piece of unfinished business that lies ahead of us in 2013: rebuilding the communities hit hardest by Hurricane Sandy – and creating a more resilient and sustainable city.” – Mayor Mike Bloomberg’s State of the City Address, February 14, 2013
The Special Initiative for Rebuilding and Resiliency (SIRR) addresses how we rebuild New York City to be more resilient in the wake of Hurricane Sandy but with a long-term focus.
We invite you to join us for a facilitated conversation about how to rebuild Williamsburg, Greenpoint, DUMBO, Long Island City and surrounding communities. We are looking for participants who are invested in this neighborhood now and for the next generation.
