On YouTube: Climate Change Impacts on NYC's City Island
Jamaica Bay / NYC - News


Katie Graziano, NYSG Coastal Resilience Extension Specialist, E: kag247@cornell.edu, P: 718-951-5415

Bronx, NY, September 26, 2022 - Examined in this episode of BronxTalk are two issues on City Island, a neighborhood in northeastern Bronx in New York City. Those issues are (1) whether there should be a City Island ferry stop and (2) how to protect the historic island’s shorelines from the ongoing effects of climate change.

The guests are John Doyle and David Diaz from City Island Rising and Katie Graziano, a Coastal Resilience Specialist from New York Sea Grant.

For her part Graziano applies her experiences with flooding in neighborhoods around Jamaica Bay, which due to sea level rise is becoming more frequent and widespread. The Science and Resilience Institute, in partnership with New York Sea Grant, works with residents, researchers and agencies to build collective knowledge about the location, timing and impacts of current and future flooding. This local, science-based information is a critical part of developing resilient solutions.

Graziano's discussion begins at around 15 minutes 8 seconds.

BronxTalk airs every Monday night at 9:00 p.m. on Channel 67 Optimum and 2133 Fios.

New York Sea Grant (NYSG), a cooperative program of Cornell University and the State University of New York (SUNY), is one of 34 university-based programs under the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Sea Grant College Program.

Since 1971, NYSG has represented a statewide network of integrated research, education and extension services promoting coastal community economic vitality, environmental sustainability and citizen awareness and understanding about the State’s marine and Great Lakes resources.

Through NYSG’s efforts, the combined talents of university scientists and extension specialists help develop and transfer science-based information to many coastal user groups—businesses and industries, federal, state and local government decision-makers and agency managers, educators, the media and the interested public.

The program maintains Great Lakes offices at Cornell University, SUNY Buffalo, SUNY Oswego and the Wayne County Cooperative Extension office in Newark. In the State's marine waters, NYSG has offices at Stony Brook University in Long Island, Brooklyn College and Cornell Cooperative Extension in NYC and Kingston in the Hudson Valley.
