The water is down and residents are picking up the pieces in Red Hook, one of the neighborhoods worst hit by Hurricane Sandy. Curbed has a nice photo collection of work happening in the neighborhood, and reports that power was partially restored there yesterday afternoon. Lots of basement pumping along Van Brunt Street and sidewalk debris all over. (Racked surveyed the retail scene, and reports that Ikea is still closed.) Over at the Red Hook Houses, The Village Voice reports, residents have gone three days without any electricity or water. The basement must be pumped out before Con Ed can restore it. At a gathering yesterday afternoon, residents complained about the slow pace of repair work and the conditions in the buildings. According to The Voice, residents have received help from the nonprofit Red Hook Initiative, but have seen little action or help from the city.
