NYCHA & the Hurricane: Public housing learns from Sandy... What’s the plan for the next big storm?

Presented by the Center for New York City Affairs

The wrenching experience of thousands of New York’s public housing residents following Hurricane Sandy revealed vulnerabilities of physical structures and human services. Volunteers, tenant associations, social service providers and NYCHA technicians all stepped in to do what they could through the worst of the aftermath. What did we learn? What about next time? What will a carefully planned and managed disaster response look like in New York City’s low-lying, low-income neighborhoods?

A conversation with:
John Rhea
, chairman, New York City Housing Authority (NYHCA)
Wally Bazemore, Red Hook community organizer
Jennifer Jones Austin, executive director, Federation of Protestant Welfare Agencies
Eric Klinenberg, professor of sociology, NYU and New Yorker contributer
Constantine Kontokosta, founding director, NYU Center for the Sustainable Built Environment

Moderated by:
Andrew White
, director, Center for New York City Affairs at The New School

The Center’s public policy forums are made possible thanks to the generous support of the Milano Foundation.
