Seems most of the neighborhood went unscathed.
Flickering lights and a lot of debris, a few downed street trees, but other than a report the old White Eagle Tavern on 23rd St. and 5th Ave suffered damage (as much due to neglect that Sandy), seems Greenwood Heights is AOK. Can’t say the same of the perimeter of the cemetery, nor any of the Zone A sections of the City. We were lucky. If folks have photos to share, please post them here, on the Greenwood Heights flickr group or e-mail us. We’d love to hear some stories from the folks in the neighborhood and how you weathered the storms.
And stay safe with the clean up!
UPDATE: For those folks who thought there may have been a fire/arcing at the Greenwood Sub-Station at 23rd St and 5th Ave, it was most likely the. Con Ed gas turbine barges (about 8 turbines to a barge) on 27th Street below 3rd Avenue to the water.
