The $20 billion proposal is part of a 430-page report that calls for the construction of levees and flood walls along parts of the East River, Staten Island and the Bronx. The mayor said the recommendations would help the city navigate weather crises from heat waves to hurricanes.

One thing I can say about Bloomberg, he is a visionary and not afraid to "think big." You may not agree with his recommendations or vision, but who else is putting forth bold and grand visions for this city? NOBODY. Almost everyone else is drowning in day-to-day nonsense and are too small minded to step-back and create a larger vision for NYC.

The city proposes Battery Park like infill along the East River near the South St Seaport in order to counter rising sea levels. This new neighborhood would be engineered to withstand potential challenges and would be energy efficient, walkable, and provide revenue in terms of taxes from new residents and business.

I really like Bloomberg, sad to see him go. A big city deserves big ideas. We need them.

The Bloomberg administration has arguably shaped this city more so then any other in the history of NYC.

Notice the transformations of neighborhoods citywide, with more to come.

Second hand smoke and extra large sodas are public health issues which cost the city money.

The Bloomberg administration attacked on all fronts. For a better NYC.

Actually, Bloomberg won fair and square.

If Bloomberg could run for a fourth term, I think he'd do well, especially with the current candidates.
