Upcoming Event: An Evening With Andrew Revkin, Science Writer for The New York Times

Including Discussion with Queens College Experts

Melting_Ice_QCWhat made the location of a city desirable in the past was certainly based on accessibility to water. It is no coincidence that most large cities are–or were–port cities. But today, this same proximity to water is perhaps a cause for concern. We certainly have seen the consequences of such urbanization during both the Tsunami and of course Katrina. But what is the real potential threat of rising tides to New York City?

Join the CUNY Institute for Sustainable Cities and Queens College in welcoming Andrew Revkin of The New York Times, in discussion with a host of Queens College experts to discuss these important issues.
