2015 Update To "Why West Chelsea Floods".

2015 Update To “Why West Chelsea Floods”.

Since 2013, when I wrote “Why West Chelsea Floods” and presented Aqua-Fence as the best and least-expensive solution for keeping West Chelsea dry, two developments have come up that would prevent the installation of this product around the entire district. Neither are trivial, but both can be overcome. • The first is that FEMA will...

Resilient Art Spaces ~ Protecting Your Gallery From Flooding

The Department of City Planning has published an excellent guide of recommendations and actions that art galleries can take to limit, if not prevent altogether, damage from flooding in West Chelsea and elsewhere.

West Chelsea South ~ Gateway To Meatpacking?

West Chelsea South ~ Gateway To Meatpacking?

Walking around West Chelsea is like gazing at the Milky Way: what you see now is really looking at the past, the future is what’s happening now. This is important to keep in mind if you have a longer-term lease because five years into your lease, West Chelsea will likely look much different than when...
