East River Flowing into Brooklyn Bridge Park

Hurricane #Irene’s “wrath” has caused the East River to overflow onto Piers 4 and 5 of Brooklyn Bridge Park as this BHB reader photo from “Owen” shows. Residents of One Brooklyn Bridge Park, between Piers 5 and 6, were asked to evacuate as it falls in one of the city’s most flood prone areas, Zone A.

Meanwhile Tumblr user Jonathan Segura notes that flooding has begun at the park entrance in DUMBO. Well, it’s more like a photo op for some:

    That is bad, can’t see why one would look to build a hotel on such a site though

    Why would one choose to build and sell condos in this ?. Perhaps the mayor and senator squadron need to rethink this AGAIN

    Wonder how Almondine’s basement bakery fared?
