For the Interim Flood Protection Measures Mural Project, the NYC Mayor's Offices of Climate Policy and Programs and Emergency Management commissioned artists to design banners to beautify 700 feet of semi-permanent HESCO barriers (sandbag walls) in Red Hook, Brooklyn. The barrier structures have been deployed in segments along Beard and Reed Streets with various openings to allow for normal vehicle and pedestrian traffic. When a storm surge from a coastal storm is forecast, the barrier walls will be connected with quickly deployable inflatable walls (Tiger Dams).
