Without any name calling or finger pointing, can somebody please explain this comment? [Flood Map Info]

“Yes, Wow! My flood insurance is getting a 5% reduction on top of the 25% annual increase. Great work, Long Beach. NYC fought the flood maps and as a result, their flood plain is three feet higher than ours. So while a guy in Rockaway Beach doesn’t have to pay the flood “tax”, we’re looking at $4,000+ per year soon.

I’m interested in the NYC portion. This comment was posted somewhere on this blog.
