Disaster Recovery and Hurricane Sandy

With Hurricane Sandy’s knockout of major office buildings in lower Manhattan, metro area organizations will all be reviewing the effectiveness of their disaster recovery plans.

In 2004, I began the effort to establish an alternative disaster recovery office site for NYCERS. It is unclear, eight years later, whether the NYCERS Long Island City recovery site would actually have been able to function as an effective disaster recovery site, if Hurricane Sandy had flooded 335 Adams Street as it did 55 Water Street, the home of the NYC Teachers Retirement System.
