As New York explored ways to make the city more resilient in the face of future extreme weather like Sandy, City Hall zeroed in on five areas it considered the hardest hit by the storm damage -- the Brooklyn-Queens Waterfront, South Queens, Southern Brooklyn, Southern Manhattan, and the East and South Shores of Staten Island. Gotham Gazette and AdaptNY surveyed representatives of half of the 18 community boards representing those hardest-hit areas, to find out what kind of impacts they suffered, how they've recovered, future impacts they worry about and their recommendations for dealing with them. We also asked how well they felt the city and communities had worked together and how well their voices were being heard. The map below outlines the 18 hardest-hit CBs. Click on those CBs in blue to find out what what we learned.
