Hurricane Sandy on October 28th
Gallerist NY has pictures of Chelsea the day after Sandy
in case you are curious... (not by any means that these are the people hardest hit by the storm). What I'm hearing is that Danziger was flooded and it was knee deep on 23rd. East Village looked even worse with at least waist deep water in places.
For the LES here is a report from Rivington street on the aftermath
Here are some of the preparations for the storm made by various institutions in NYC
Tyler Green is compiling a Museum damage report list
In DC the Hirschhorn is giving free admission to anyone named Sandy
Arch Daily asks if Sandy's deluge will get New York to redesign its waterfront?
The Times covers the Chelsea damage
Jerry Saltz surveys the devastation
. ...then follows up with a more optimistic report
I'll update this as I find more Sandy info related to art and design. Hopefully everyone stays safe.
We got from Portland to our appt in East Village on the Friday before Sandy... just in time to stock up and hunker down. On Sunday, the storm surge got up to about a block and a half away (half way up between Avenue B and C on 6th street. Friday night we finally got power. On Friday 23rd street to 39th was still dark, as well as Houston. By Saturday AM (Nov 4th) most was on.
Best blackout photo I've seen...
Some galleries in Chelsea took it hard:

We had it very easy, just no electricity for 5 days. Many are in real need.
