This chapter outlines the major spatial planning initiatives undertaken in the New York region in response to Hurricane Sandy, illustrating the different approaches taken by New York City, New York State and the US federal government and contrasting these programs with the spatial planning programs in neighbouring New Jersey, which was equally hard hit by the storm. New York City, the state and the federal government designed innovative recovery planning processes that illustrate a way of thinking about long term community recovery from disasters that increasingly includes citizen-based decision-making and long-term resilience in addition to rebuilding and replacement. Nonetheless, these emergent approaches are far from ubiquitous and still pose daunting implementation challenges that will have to be overcome in order to achieve effective recovery and enhanced resiliency.
