Re: A Daily Dose of Architecture: Rising Currents and Open Piers

Comment on the opening of the Brooklyn Bridge Park, besides “Yipee!”

Stony Brook University engineering dept. did some in-ground testing of ash leftover from power generation, formed into blocks (cinder-blocks) and found that after 10 years there was no adverse effects to the soil surrounding them. One of the suggestions for the recycled materials was as a cheap way to mediate rising sea levels. Escape from New York?
