Thousands of New Yorkers are still rebuilding after the devastating wrath of Hurricane Sandy – and as restoration of the hard-hit Far Rockaway continues, the Museum of Modern Art is seeking to collaborate with artists, architects and designers to rebirth the battered neighborhood with a unique mission. The new initiative is calling on ideas for alternative housing models, the creation of social spaces, new uses of public space, boardwalk restoration, protection of the shoreline, and more for the Rockaways.
