I'm interested from an engineering perspective in:
1) Damage to over-built or misbuilt coastal areas (e.g. no stilts, no surge mitigation)
2) How long the under-staffed power companies take to rebuild the power grid (since skeleton staffing and deferring risk mitigation projects are the rule).
3) How much NYC infrastructure is damaged since it has deferred mitigation of rising water issues. The pictures of the water flooding into subways are a little surreal (as are the street cruising sharks ).
