This Resilience+ approach will protect NYC from climate change while enhancing the waterfront to include new public open space, resilient ferry terminals, new stormwater management systems, and accessibility.

NYC is increasingly vulnerable to flooding due to climate change. More intense coastal storms, rising sea levels, and extreme precipitation are already causing flooding across New York City. To protect Lower Manhattan, the City has developed the Financial District and Seaport Climate Resilience Plan and is building Resilience+ infrastructure around Lower Manhattan.
