NYCHA Recovery and Resilience: Public Housing After Superstorm Sandy

Janes Walk

Led By Onel Hidalgo, Outreach Manager, NYCHA Recovery and Resilience

Superstorm Sandy proved to be the most costly and destructive disaster to impact New York City public housing in its history. Join us on a self-guided walk through Coney Island to learn how NYCHA’s Recovery and Resilience Department is pushing design boundaries and building back stronger and smarter to make public housing safer for generations to come.

The self-guided tour will begin approximately .80 miles from the Beach 67th Street train station (A), which is not wheelchair accessible. Street parking is usually available in the area. The complete walk will total nearly 4 miles and feature several New York City Housing Authority sites. However, this can be condensed, as needed.
