Is that the only attic?

If it really turns into a problem, I wonder if the Trade Center site will flood. It is all lower than the streets around it.

No. This is a finished one: painted walls & carpeted off the media room. It's really long but has a slanted ceiling. There's another walk-in not too far from it but it's not easy to access because of a huge vent right as you walk in (bad design). Then there's a typical roof attic where the AC/Furnace units reside.

dontwantaname wrote:The problem with down town manhattan is it is a dead end if there is a storm surge.
Staten island and long island are at the mouth on NY harbor and manhattan is a few miles further up. If the surge goes into the harbor, it is sort of trapped and will flood lower manhattan.

Most of the south coast of long island, from Brooklyn to the east end (about 120 miles) is low.
NYC wants everyone in the low part out.
Nassau county wants every one out. Not mandatory, just a suggestion to visit someone further from the water and higher.

Even a few pplaces on the north shore are low, but not as many.

Long island is the end of the glacier. The north shore tends to be high. It was all the rubble being pushed ahead of the ice.
The south shore is lower.
The official name is the terminal moraine and the out wash plain.

I sat in on a geology lesson of hubby's . For some reason I remember that.



Now, where they are going to put everyone in Brooklyn I have no clue. Those neighborhoods are mostly high rise apts. Lots of people!



Aren't you Nassau? What about Mom?

Mom is 15 miles further east.
Step sister is around a mile from her.
She has neighbors too. She has an extra garage and they have ATV's and jet skis and stuff they like to put in her garage.
In return they watch after her and shovel her snow....mostly because their snow blowers live in her garage too.

It could It is lower that the entire area around it.
That will screw up transportation. Tons of trains go under it. Subway, trains from NJ.

Not sure where Kenney is.

We had so many big storms, all the rivers, streams and small lakes are full.

Most of it son's old toys that he refuses to get rid of. Once he gets his own house, they will be dumped on him very quickly. Added about 7 boxes from ex's stuff. I had hoped to fit a dresser in there to store stuff but alas, it appears that will not happen.
