On this episode, Brian goes in on NYC infrastructure. Red Hook was one of the most impacted Brooklyn neighborhoods during and after Hurricane Sandy, especially affecting those who lived in public housing. Hear how residents of the Red Hook Houses and members of the Red Hook Initiative are preparinng for the next storm as the sea levels continually rise.

After a tragic bike accident, the city’s implementation of protected bike lanes gets called into question. We hear from bike safety advocates and activists on how they work with elected officials to provide safe streets.

Lastly, as frustrations around the MTA grow, the ferry is transporting more New Yorkers than expected. We meet some of the NYC boat captains, and some of the residents of “transit deserts” who benefit from the NYC Ferry program.
