Conservancy Consults on East Side Coastal Resiliency Plans

The Conservancy is a consulting party reviewing City plans for a coastal flood protection system along the East River from Montgomery Street to East 25th Street. The system would be located largely within City parkland and would include flood walls, levies, floodgates and other infrastructure improvements. The project impacts a number of City landmarks and National Register listed properties, including the Asser Levy Public Baths and Church of St. Brigid–St. Emeric on Tompkins Square. Our role is to minimize any impact on the historic buildings.
