Causes of Sandy Flooding Rooted in Over Development

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

WNYC

New Jersey officials, led by Governor Chris Christie, have repeatedly cited the state's "Blue Acres" program  as a viable option for dealing with neighborhoods that were badly flooded in storms Sandy and Irene. The program buys property from homeowners and converts the area to a park. But for the thousands of New Jersey residents looking for a buyout, Blue Acres might as well be a unicorn.

WNYC Covers the Storm

Monday, December 31, 2012

When a deadly and historic storm struck New York and New Jersey in late October, WNYC Radio became the hearth for a shell-shocked community to share needs, demand answers to pressing questions and get vital information.

On that evening of Oct. 29, WNYC lost electric service along with the rest of Lower Manhattan, but managed to stay on the air with generator power, austerity, and the sheer will of a dispersed staff. In a city without subways and tunnels, hosts, reporters and producers walked in the dark to reach our studios, and improvised to report from far-flung storm-ravaged areas.

Thursday, May 24, 2012

There's a lonely, whistled melody that originates somewhere around section 133 in the Prudential Center in Newark. The crowd knows it well and when it ends, the house full of Devils fans chants in unison, "Rangers suck!” There is little love between these two teams and their armies of fans, separated by the moat of the Hudson River.  And now, they’re locked in a grinding battle to reach the Stanley Cup Finals.
