Sandy Aftermath

The Lo-Down reports that James Fuentes is hoping to organize a floor-to-floor sweep in East River Coop today to check up on residents who are in need of supplies and unable to climb the stairs. Email if you are able to help.

(Another resident reports that after a similar sweep on Wednesday by our maintenance employees, there’s been no sign that such an effort has continued.)

The Lo-Down also is keeping track of local organizations looking for volunteers and donations.

Reports are mixed about when power will be restored. Some LES residents have received recorded calls indicating that service is expected to be restored by 11pm Saturday. Con Ed’s website has no official timeline.

Stay safe.
