I haven't lived there in Brooklyn for seven years, but I dearly love it still, and I'm wondering how my neighborhoods of Carroll Gardens and Park Slope are doing on the day after the floods from Sandy. I know it got pretty bad in Red Hook. If you have any photos to post here, I'd love to see them, along with any accounts of your experiences.
Red Hook and Gowanus are pretty messed up. Cobble Hill / Carroll Gardens are pretty much OK, except for some minor-ish basement flooding. Park Slope is mostly OK above 5th Ave., the rest has some minor flooding related to the Gowanus and basements. There are many shelters in Park Slope receiving people from other areas of South Brooklyn--like Coney Island, etc.--those shelters need help, most notably the Armory and John Jay HS on 7th Ave. I can't get there, or I'd be helping tonight. Bushwick is the luckiest neighborhood, as well as Bed Stuy and Clinton Hill, though they lost internet at some point and Bushwick lost nothing throughout the storm. We do have some downed trees and signs, though. TONS of info, photos, and first-person accounts over here on twitter: http://twitter.com/lauravogel
Hope all went smoothly for you guys!!!
