The BIG Team imagines some ways in which NYC could fortify Lower Manhattan and its borders in the event of another superstorm like Hurricane Sandy.

I was wondering when people would complain about this. Lower Manhattan these days is such a hard place to navigate mostly thanks to the WTC complex and construction. And it seems, at least in this video, that even when construction is all done, that Lower Manhattan will stay pretty closed off.

The Barthman Sidewalk Clock at the corner of Broadway and Maiden Lane is a little forgotten piece of history of NYC. I certainly have never heard of this clock, but I want to see it in person when I get back.
