As another hurricane season begins, insurance number crunchers Core Logic has served up a hurricane risk report pegging the greater New York City area as the area that would suffer the greatest financial risk nationwide. Hurricane Irene was a bit underwhelming when it finally reached us as a tropical storm last summer, but it still caused $6 billion in damage. It’s still easy to see how anxiously some prepared. Were a full-on actual hurricane were to hit the City, Core Logic estimates the at-risk properties in New York City to be worth almost $168 billion.
