Taqueria is garden-unit esque similar to the hair salon and Carlascio Orthopaedics on Grove Street.

Farther down the street, there aren't the slightly lower units and ones 5 feet up like the locksmith - they are pretty much right at street level.

If these businesses (hardgrove, ibbys, shadman, etc) cannot get covereage because they are not high enough, then what will happen to this section of town ?

They will move to higher ground eventually. Like everyone else that is getting wise to this scam.

Because it doesn't hurt businesses or street life when they're wiped out for months after a storm like Sandy? (Like Taqueria) Or how about having to pay much higher insurance premiums because new construction doesn't conform with the new reality we now live in? I don't think walking up a few steps would deter me from frequenting a business. There are already some shops on Grove that seem to do just fine being above street level, like the locksmith and the barber shop. Bet they were counting their blessings after Sandy that they were situated where they were.

quote from article:

?Obviously, you can?t lift a 130 year old brownstone up out of the flood hazard area. We fear these new rules are anti-urban,? he writes in an email to JCI. That?s true of new buildings ready to break ground, stalling development and halting jobs while the city planners work to accommodate the new requirements which will see the first floor raised at least five feet above the sidewalk level. This will be ?devastating to the street life of the city,? he says, noting how it could hurt street-level businesses.

Are new developments really going to do this??

oh yeah....from 9700 to 12 something....and i heard it's 25% every year for about 4 years because FEMA is passing it to the insurance companies to handle 100%.
