Flooding in the Rockaways: Strategies for Adaptation

  • Queens Library at Peninsula 92-25 Rockaway Beach Boulevard Queens, NY 11693 (map)

What does it mean to call a water-edge city home in a time of extreme weather? How can our communities learn to live with rapidly rising seas? When might retreat make sense? Join us for a screening of short documentary Managed Retreat by Nathan Kensinger, followed by a panel discussion on the flooding challenges the Rockaways face and what we can do about them.

This event is presented by the Climate Museum and the Jamaica Bay Rockaway Parks Conservancy, and is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be provided.

For more information on the panelists (Nathan Kensinger, Lisa Bova-Hiatt, and Alex Zablocki, as moderator) and to RSVP, click here.
