Superstorm Sandy at PVC

October 29 -  Superstorm Sandy hits NYC

We were badly hit by Sandy here in New York City, especially those of us who live in what was called Zone A, the evacuation zone. These are buildings that are by the water - either the Hudson River, New York Harbor or the East River. Waterside, Stuyvesant Town and Peter Cooper Village are all close to the FDR Drive, which got badly flooded by water from the East River, as did these complexes. People were without power (elevators, lights, water, heat) for over a week. In some cases electrical systems were damaged and temporary emergency generators had to be brought in.
