Van Brunt St. in Red Hook Remains Flooded into Tuesday Morning

As water begins to recede, some streets are faring better than others.


Van Brunt Street in Red Hook remained flooded from Sandy's deluge as of 11:15 a.m. on Tuesday morning. The area by Fairway supermarket is prone to flooding during coastal events, like the storm New York City faced Monday night.

The neighborhood was part of Zone A, which was ordered to evacuate beginning Sunday evening. Some residents and business owners, however, chose to stay behind despite the mandate. 

Stay with Patch for updates later today.

Sandy was a storm surge event, not a rain event. Was this saltwater or fresh rainwater? Big difference. I took a spin around Red Hook this AM and saw many cars sitting at odd angles to the road. Not a question of bad parking, they had floated there in the surge last night. I asked the owner of a big SUV and he couldn't figure his vehicle had been moved.
