Comment of the Day

Check out the Brooklyn flood maps - The Edge, Bayard street, and Flushing Ave are all screwed by this. FEMA needs to redraw the FIRMs using the recent NYC LIDAR data ASAP. The 1850s maps available on NYPL show the Bushwick Swamp and all of the polluted/flooded basements of today. Add 5 million barrels of Greenpoint oil into the underwater stew and you get quite a mess. —anon [Flood Insurance Required for NYC Buyers]
