Irene: The Day After (Updated 1:52 p.m.)

Must Read

Here’s a recap on Manhattan’s mostly successful effort to move on from this past weekend’s Irene hoopla:

  • Via Community Board 3, we hear the playground on Avenue A and the mini-pool are just about to-reopen (or might have already opened) in Tompkins Square Park. But as EV Grieve has been reporting, a lot of trees were damaged. The rest of the park will remain closed until fallen trees are removed.
  • Parks Department staff want to remind everyone that it’s still very dangerous in the parks. If you see a down tree, here’s what you should do.
  • Lo-Down readers report there were few, if any problems getting to work today. Please let us know if you encountered any subway or bus troubles!
  • The Fringe Festival got cut short, but next months they’ll make up for it.

UPDATE 1:52 P.M.

The city is making progress inside Tompkins Square Park. Here’s a status report:

>Ave. A Playground open.

>Ave B and 7th Street Playgrounds open.

>Dog Run open.

>Game table Area open

>Pool open
