AND believes that building neighborhood resiliency isn’t just about preparing for the next Hurricane Sandy; it’s about creating systems that are able to withstand, recover quickly, and bounce back stronger after crises.
The communities of Northern Manhattan, due to topography, a history of disinvestment, and increasingly intense environmental events, are vulnerable to crises like extreme storms, flooding, heat waves, and air pollution.
But our neighborhoods also contain robust networks of people, organizations, and institutions that make the community stronger. AND is committed to helping build resiliency networks across Northern Manhattan by integrating mitigation,
protection, and preparation into our buildings, projects, partnerships, and thinking.
Several years ago, AND committed to mitigating the processes that lead to air pollution, reliance on fossil fuels, and global climate change through good design and retrofits for our individual buildings, and progressive energy
practices for our portfolio as a whole.
