Life at the Water's Edge II

Today Governor Cuomo said we need to have "a fundamental rethinking of our built environment." It reminded me of an exhibit at MoMA that I wrote about a few years back where architects were asked to re-envision the entire New York Harbor coastline (one of the models is pictured above). Little did any of us know how soon we would need to undertake that activity. As Cuomo said in a press conference yesterday, "Anyone who says there's not a dramatic change in weather patterns, I think is denying reality." 

This city needs to make some changes and in a hurry. All we can do at this point is adapt and be prepared. Buckle up, we're in for a bumpy ride.
