East Side Coastal Resiliency Project

The section of coastline running from Brooklyn Bridge to the Battery will be the first to be constructed. Flood protection in this area is primarily provided by 'The Battery Berm', which weaves an elevated path with a series of upland knolls to form unique landscapes. The plan envisions transforming the existing Coast Guard building into a new maritime museum or environmental education facility featuring a “Reverse Aquarium” where visitors can observe tidal variations and sea level rise.
