More assistance is available for Sandy reconstruction in the form of a new Building Department advisory program. Their senior officials, technical experts and plan examiners are now available to work closely with homeowners who need to submit applications and construction plans for properties in a special flood hazard area as shown on the effective flood insurance rate maps or the advisory maps recently issued by FEMA. The new program is designed to accelerate the approval process for these projects, assist homeowners with their decisions on reconstruction and better ensure that new flood recommendations and standards are incorporated into the design and construction of the affected buildings. Before plans are submitted, Department officials will outline the Building Code and Zoning requirements that apply to the location and offer guidance on submitting drawings that comply with the latest regulations.
The free design consultations for any construction project related to Hurricane Sandy will be offered starting on Monday, March 4, 2013. To ensure that property owners understand the construction and zoning requirements involved, they must attend a consultation along with their New York State-licensed architect or engineer. At the end of each consultation, the Department will provide applicants with a list of recommendations to be incorporated into the final construction plans submitted to the Department.
To request a consultation, please e-mail email@example.com with the property’s address in the subject line. A questionnaire will be emailed to the sender and should be completed prior to the consultation.

Hurricane Sandy closed the Manhattan Youth Downtown Community Center for more than two months. Their staff pumped 2 million gallons of water out of the Arts and Culture level and removed everything – including all the walls – and they’ve repaired, cleaned and painted the upper three floors of the Center.
The Center reopened recently, but the Arts and Culture level stands empty.
It’s a perfect space for a party!
Celebrate the renewal of the Center at a spectacular benefit event on Thursday, February 28, 2013 (time TBA).
Enjoy a fabulous dinner tasting prepared by some of the greatest Lower Manhattan chefs along with drinks at poolside.
Help Manhattan Youth rebuild their studio classrooms and spaces for arts, ceramics, filmmaking, music production, culinary arts, theatre and teen programs.
For sponsorship opportunities please call Bob Townley at 212-766-1104, ext. 229 or Jim Hopkins at 212-766-1104, ext. 232. More details will be available soon.
