In Red Hook the clean-up is underway post-super storm Sandy. Just down from Ikea on Beard Street I came across this boat which had been ripped from its moorings over a block away.
Our Borough President gave a speech to guests at the new Ikea in Red Hook this morning as they waited for it to open.
These folks are queuing up for the opening of the new Ikea in Redhook. They have been promised a free settee if they brave it until the Wednesday opening, two nights away.
The evening began with a storm, bringing the first endurance challenge of torrential rain and strong gusts of wind.
Things did calm down and people began settling down for the night.
