    I raised some of the same issues as Captn Transit a little less judgementally over on the now expiring Room Eight.  In another metro area it would make lots of sense to encourage or require rebuilding on higher ground.

    The problem is, in the New York area we have very little in the way of development sites, expensive land, and expensive construction for 75 miles out from Manhatttan.  We’re mostly built out.  Development that replaces other viable development, even at significantly higher densities, is difficult, time consuming and costly.
