East Harlem Resiliency Plan

East Harlem Resiliency Study

A Vision Plan for East Harlem

The East Harlem Resiliency Study, led by NYC Parks and the Mayor’s Office of Recovery and Resiliency, brings together neighbors to share ideas on how East Harlem can be a stronger and safer community in the face of a changing climate, including risks from increased flooding (i.e. future sea level rise, storm surge, increased precipitation) and higher temperatures.

We aim to produce a final Vision Plan for East Harlem by late 2018. We invite your ideas and participation as we develop this Vision Plan, which will be a roadmap of recommendations to shape resiliency projects and prioritize neighborhood improvements.

Area of Study

This resiliency study area covers East Harlem and its surrounding neighborhood, ranging from East 92nd Street to 154th Street. To find out which streets and parks are included in the study, please download our Study Area Map.
