We write to express our very serious concerns regarding the exclusion of North Brooklyn in any of the immediate hurricane emergency planning initiatives announced by the Mayor’s Office and the NYC Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) on September 1st. While we were pleased to see the thoughtful and impactful resiliency strategies and investments that are planned or in progress across our city, we cannot ignore the blatant exclusion of North Brooklyn neighborhoods, primarily Greenpoint, Williamsburg, and Bushwick.
