MAP DONE BY: CUNY Graduate Center researchers and students

The map was developed to help ensure a match between the needs of the community and the efforts of individuals, organizations and groups wanting to assist in the recovery process.  It incorporates information from Occupy Wall Street relief efforts and from surveys and interviews done by CUNY Graduate Center researchers and students since November 4, 2012.

This map is not comprehensive of the current situation in all the neighborhoods of the Rockaways. We encourage all emergency service providers and relief volunteers to please populate information on the map to assist in coordinating recovery efforts.  An instructional video is provided below and you must have a google email account to edit the map.  The situation evolves daily, so please view this map as a rapid assessment of the community that will change.
