Surviving Sandy

Survivor stories and lessons in the path of Sandy. We’ll listen.

Mile after mile of storied ocean front, a tangled wreck. Subways, tunnels, drowned in Manhattan. Wall Street, washed out. New Yorkers stranded in dark sky scrapers. Epic gas lines. Epic bus lines. Climate questions and a terrible sense of fragility. That we can’t handle this too often.

This hour, On Point: survivor stories and lessons learned from Sandy….. (more).
