During the first half of the fall 2013 semester, City and Regional Planning graduate students of Pratt Institute’s Fundamentals course worked in three groups focusing research efforts on the built, social, and natural environments of the Lower East Side (MCD3), through the lens of disaster preparedness, in response to the drastic impact of Superstorm Sandy. The second part of the semester was spent formulating a set of recommendations based on this research; it was very important to the students that the recommendations were presented in a way that made them feasible for GOLES and LES Ready to act upon. The level of dedication and collaborative effort exhibited by the students prompted the continuation of the students’ work into the spring semester.
