Waterlogged: Can NY Learn From Venice?

Jonathan Jones comments: ‘We are used to thinking of Venice as a city in peril, a glorious relic of human creativity that is about to go under any day now – the end looks closer. But there is another point of view. Venice is no longer alone in its peril. In the past few weeks we have even seen New York in peril. As climate change makes extreme weather more frequent, Venice looks less like a victim of the sea and more like an old survivor that can teach the rest of the world how to live with water.’
