Sandy Destroys Around Two Dozen Trees in Corlears Hook & East River Parks

Must Read

Hurricane Sandy destroyed hundreds of trees in parks across New York City.  The other day we posted a few photos from Corlears Hook Park, across from the East River Park bandshell.  Today we got the chance to survey the damage first-hand.  About a dozen trees toppled, many being completely uprooted.  Today the park remained closed. Almost all of the pathways are blocked by tree trunks, branches and other debris. The dog run is also off limits. See our series of photos after the jump:

The damage is also pretty bad a short distance to the north in East River Park, in an area just above the Williamsburg Bridge. We noticed another dozen or so trees destroyed in the vicinity:

  1. Very sad. Corlears Hook had already lost quite a few trees to Irene. Our parks are going to need a lot of new trees.
