Hurricane Sandy: From Worse To Even Worse In Gowanus


Carroll St looking west from between 3rd and Nevins at around 9:15 PM

Reader Rick Weisfeld just sent the photo above. He writes:
"The water is up between Nevins and 3rd on Sacket, Union, Carroll at least. Closer to Nevins
Union St bridge arches up out of it because it is elevated. Carroll st Bridge looked maybe under."

And here is one taken by friend Cynthia S. showing Bond Street near President Street.
More photos below of the Gowanus area during Hurricane Sandy. These were taken on Bond Street after the 8 PM high tide by my friend Jeff Peltz. He reports that "the water down the street was a few feet deep, and very toxic. It smelled like oil and sewerage."
Very scary.

I am very worried about all my Gowanus friends. Some have reported that their electricity is now off.
If you read this, please send me a quick email or leave a comment so that I know you are all right.
