Almost three weeks after Hurricane Sandy hit, NYCHA restored power, heat, hot water, and elevator service to all of the buildings hit by the hurricane. According to NYCHA, “There were 402 buildings without electricity and 386 buildings without heat and hot water affecting approximately 80,000 residents.” In Brooklyn, developments in Red Hook, Gowanus, and Coney Island were hit the worst. NYCHA crews will resume managing the buildings as normal today, after sending out third-party cleaning crews, contractors, utility companies and agencies from the city, and representatives from the state and federal government. Last week residents of the Red Hook Houses called for a rent strike and a lawsuit against NYCHA after no heat, hot water or electricity for more than a two week span. Since last Thursday morning, 20 of 32 Red Hook Houses buildings without heat and hot water regained both.
