It pisses me off to no end how short-sightedness is now going to cost a lot of dollars and personal pain. People saw this coming but since it was unlikely in their lifetime they did nothing about it. For stupidity/selfishness little was done to protect the city against this sort of event.

I bet it will be months before the flooded subways are completely operational. Sea water does nasty things to electrical components, especially when they are 100 years old. I'd say it's a good opportunity for NYC to modernize the whole subway system. And build some flood control systems and dikes while they are at it. It's just gonna get worse…
