On June 15, the New York City Council's office of Recovery and Resiliency held a joint hearing with the Council's committee on Parks and Recreation at City Hall.
Council chairs Mark Treyger, Chair of Recovery and Resilience, and Mark Levine, Chair of Parks and Recreation, did an awesome job! They held NYC Parks, the Mayor, and the Army Corps of Engineers quite accountable and stressed a keen sense of urgency. They reminded all those under oath that the communities that are affected, are paying very close attention.
I want to commend Councilmembers Eric Ulrich and Donovan Richards for representing their districts on the peninsula at the hearing. While Councilman Richards' concerns are certainly substantial along the shore in the Beach 20s
