As part of the Harlem Heat Project, AdaptNY partner WNYC's Data News team looked at the average heat index throughout the day and turned each feels-like temperature into a musical note. We then condensed a full 24 hours of readings into 20-second songs: one for the outdoor temperature, and one for the indoor temperature.
The web news video show Huffington Post Rise recently profiled AdaptNY's Harlem Heat Project in a two-and-a-half-minute video that features an interviews with participants from our community-based partner in the project.
New York City tackles extreme heat today through long- and short-term strategies. But some of its initiatives are poorly executed or stuck in the planning stages. An estimated 140 people still die every year due to heat.
