In the spring and fall of 2015, Brighton Neighborhood Association (BNA), Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) New York, and Hester Street (HST) worked together with the most socio-economic vulnerable residents of Brighton Beach to identify needs, challenges and priorities in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy in order to strengthen long-term community resiliency that vulnerable to flooding and its aftermath. HST conducted background research, community surveys, and prepared a final report with recommendations to strengthen the resiliency of the Brighton Beach community.
