The first part of Team Downtown's presentation on "How to Keep Downtown Manhattan Safe and Resilient"
For a few months before the conference, three American-Dutch Strategy Teams of 6 to 8 experts have collaborated on how to protect three areas of New York and New Jersey from future storms. In this session, an American-Dutch team presents its synthesis, combining the best knowledge, solutions and experience from both sides of the Atlantic, on how to protect South Street Seaport and downtown Manhattan.
