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.
