The New York City Housing Authority continues to restore power, heat and hot water to developments currently without service due to the storm. During the past week NYCHA has returned heat and hot water to many buildings across the city and is working with the utility companies and other government agencies to restore these essential services to every NYCHA resident as quickly as possible.
Developments without Electricity
- Red Hook East- 10 out of 18 buildings housing 1,393 residents.
- Red Hook West- 9 out of 14 buildings housing 2,242 residents.
HEAT AND HOT WATER
Developments without heat and hot water
- Red Hook East- 8 out of 18 buildings housing 809 residents
- Red Hook West- 14 buildings housing 3,206 residents
We are bringing in temporary boilers to provide heat and hot water to all of these developments and expect them to come online over the next week. We have also established warming centers in several locations including Red Hook and have distributed blankets to residents in these locations.
