Retrofitting Resilience In Red Hook, Brooklyn: A Roadmap for Neighborhood-scale Integration of Green Infrastructure

Partenio, Andrea

As a piece of research being used to inform Resilient Red Hook’s Comprehensive Resilient Vision Plan, this project builds a case for the wider implementation of green infrastructure solutions in Red Hook, Brooklyn for the purpose of improving stormwater management strategies to reduce flood risk. The document provides a snapshot of existing conditions that impact flooding within the neighborhood, including a summary of citywide policies and local zoning amendments, an overview of ongoing resilience projects and green infrastructure initiatives, as well as an analysis of Red Hook’s built environment and its evolving land cover. In an effort to minimize the volume of stormwater runoff within the community and to ultimately reduce the risk of flood inundation, Resilient Red Hook is advocating for a greater focus on the incorporation of green infrastructure solutions within the City’s wider approach to stormwater management.
