Lower Manhattan Coastal Resiliency

The Lower Manhattan Coastal Resiliency Project (LMCR) is an integrated coastal protection initiative being led by the Mayor's Office for Recovery & Resiliency aimed at reducing flood risk due to coastal storms and sea level rise in Lower Manhattan. The LMCR Project spans the Lower Manhattan coast from Montgomery Street to the northern end of Battery Park City, and seeks to improve access to the waterfront as well as enhance public spaces in the community.


Rising to the Challenge: Red Hook Initiative

Red Hook WIFI began as a small pilot project in early 2012 for Red Hook, a neighborhood in Brooklyn where broadband adoption rates are lower than the city average. Encouraged by the pilot’s success, the Red Hook WIFI program has since expanded to include 15 hotspots throughout the neighborhood. It now serves hundreds of Red Hook residents, businesses, and visitors—and is also one of our 11 RISE : NYC winners.
