The storm came, bringing destruction and massive strain to the city’s social fabric. What have we learned in Sandy’s wake? How can our environmental history help us understand the social and political consequences of the storm? Can the experience of Sandy help us think about New York’s possible futures?
Devastation, planning, and the fate of cities. Join fellow members of the Cooper community in the Great Hall for ideas and discussion.
