Adding the impacts climate change will have on existing infrastructure, the infrastructure price tag for Port of New York and New Jersey is staggering. How will the Port Authority and governments in both states rise to meet this challenge? What will be required of the private sector and what policies and priorities must be addressed by both states for a sustainable future?
