Photos: Hurricane Irene

By the time Sunday morning rolled around, the coast seemed to be clear, at least for Manhattanites who’d hunkered down during Irene. The hurricane was eventually downgraded to a tropical storm, and New Yorkers went out and on with their lives. And of course, everyone took pictures of everything from downed trees to cleanup efforts. Thanks to everyone who took the time to pass on the results.

Thank you to all our readers for contributing pics! Find the full story in Town & Village newspaper.

Management asks residents to stay indoors

Though Irene has been downgraded as a tropical storm, ST/PCV management is asking residents to continue to remain indoors due to issues such as downed trees and ongoing work on the grounds.

Rose Associates just sent out the following resident alert:

Fallen trees, dangling tree limbs and slippery sidewalks continue to make moving around the property difficult. Management is asking that you remain inside and do not venture out on to the property. Manpower is currently being deployed to begin removing fallen trees as well as surveying trees and removing branches.

In the meantime, about 50 buildings have had steam shut off according to Con Ed and will be without hot water until further notice.

In an e-mail blast sent out yesterday, the following buildings were listed.

An alert for ST/PCV from management on hurricane preparedness

The following notice was sent out earlier by Rose Associates to ST/PCV residents offering preparedness tips and property alerts for this weekend.

Hurricane Readiness Tips

The National Weather Service forecasts that the impacts of Hurricane Irene will reach the New York Metropolitan Area this weekend, bringing tropical storm or hurricane force conditions, heavy rain and strong winds. To prepare for these stormy conditions, it is recommended that you:

– Check supplies: Food and water is available, emergency supply kit is stocked, “go bag” is ready, cell phone is charged, and battery operated radio with extra batteries is handy.

– Check on friends and neighbors especially those who are elderly or have disabilities or special needs and require assistance with their preparation.

– Stay tuned to local radio and TV broadcasts for the latest information.

– Minimize your exposure to the outside elements. Stay inside.

– Find a safe place in your apartment:

– Close and lock all window

– Draw all shades. Close all blinds and drapes

– Place folded towels on window sills to absorb any leaking water

– Stay in your apartment in a room with few or no windows. Locate the nearest exit stairway.

Governor Cuomo declares state of emergency in preparation for Irene

In preparation for the potential impact of hurricane Irene, Governor Cuomo has declared a state of emergency.

According to an official statement, Cuomo and his administration have been working with Mayor Bloomberg as well as the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the National Weather Service to discuss the potential tracks of the storm.

“I urge New Yorkers to personally prepare for hurricane conditions and to cooperate with emergency officials if needed. By working together, we will all be able to face this storm in a calm and organized manner,” Cuomo said on Thursday afternoon.

Pat Sallin, a member of the Manhattan 6 Stuy Midtown CERT (Community Emergency Response Team), has recommended that community residents prepare for the possibility that they may be stuck at home for a while and make sure they have enough food and water as well as a go-bag at the ready.

Tips for preparedness and info on Irene’s whereabouts can be found on the city Office of Emergency Management website.
