Weathering the Storm: Rebuilding a More Resilient NYCHA Post-Sandy
The New York City Housing Authority commends the organizations that produced the Weathering the Storm report released on March 12, 2014. Many of the recommendations in the report are consistent with the post storm report that NYCHA produced internally.
