In the spirit of the Justice40
the maps highlight underserved and historically underinvested communities that will be hardest hit by future flooding. These visually striking maps will become important tools for the Waterfront Alliance climate resilience advocacy and education efforts. They will also be accessible to government, civil society and private sector stakeholders for their climate resilience policy and program development and implementation.
The first iteration of maps uses open source data to visualize flooding predictions for New York City’s 5 boroughs. Further iterations will cover areas in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut that border the Hudson Estuary, Long Island Sound and the Atlantic Ocean.
