Interesting article and always interesting to hear how cities are preparing for climate change. You may want to fact which city has the world’s largest subway system. NYC is fifth I believe. Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou, and London are larger. I’ve been on all of them and they are monstrous.
Just think, Sandy was not a hurricane but a super storm, i.e. two storm systems collided. Wonder what the New York City subway system would look like had Sandy been a Category 5.
