From a NYTimes article on Facing New Reality: "Hurricane Sandy is now a gauge of the region’s new fragility.... to simply mop up is a fool’s errand...."We just can’t rebuild it the way it was. The worst thing to do is to have this experience and not learn from it"....Hurricane Sandy...should lead to a “massive reordering of priorities.”

And from another on Protecting the City, Before Next Time, three proposals: for marshy edges and absorptive streets; re-built oyster beds; and a dam w/ tidal gates.
