Thanks. We took a punch in 2001; we can do it again. New Jersey is in trouble, and New York is bad in low areas.

Note: the World Trade Center had a bulkhead because it was built on the edge of the Hudson. Battery Park City was built on land-fill out to the end of what were piers. That narrows the Hudson. Jersey City has done the same.
That was a windfall for real-estate owners: new land in lower Manhattan, whoopee!

People will be forced to consider flooding wherever they rebuild.

Personal note: my son, Redskin Dan v1978, joined the New Jersey Army National Guard in 2002 because he wanted to be in uniform, helping if there was another catastrophe. There were two wars after he enlisted...he never got the chance to be a "weekend warrior". NJ Guard are rescuing people in Hoboken: Hooah to that!
