Managed Retreat

Nathan Kensinger | USA | 18 min.

Faced with rising sea levels, three New York City neighborhoods are purchased by the government, to be demolished and permanently returned to nature. They are the first communities in the city to undergo a 'managed retreat' from the waterfront, in the face of climate change. Over the course of a year, seasons change, homes are destroyed, and wild animals begin to return, as the coastline of Staten Island is transformed.
