Summer In The City: Improving Community Resilience To Extreme Summertime Heat In Northern Manhattan

Environment

A new report by WE ACT for Environmental Justice and the Natural Resources Defense Council shows that extreme summertime heat is distributed unevenly throughout New York City and disproportionately impacts Black and Latino communities. Summer In The City: Improving Community Resilience To Extreme Summertime Heat In Northern Manhattan provides an overview of current and projected extreme heat fueled by climate change; reveals the results of a first-of-its-kind community heat survey on how residents experience and cope with extreme heat; and provides policy recommendations that address the experiences of those most impacted by the urban heat island effect.
