Evacuation -E Hartsdale Ave
Release Date: April 18, 2007

I just came back from East Hartsdale Ave–spoke to many of the store owners/managers and residents of 180 & 170 East Hartsdale Ave who experienced flooddamage. The stores had serious water damage. The power has been shut off.  It’s possible that some of the E Hartsdalebusinesses will be closed for at least a week.  Some of the stores do not have floodinsurance so they may experience major financial hardships. The basements were flooded – causing a significant loss of property.  I have been in touch with Senator Clinton’s regional director and with Senator Andrea Stewart-Cousins office, advising them of the problems these merchants are experiencing. I’m hopeful that federal and/or state help can be provided.

Two retaining walls, one behind the stores and a 2nd behind one of the apartment buildings also collapsed. Residents of 180 & 170 E Hartsdale Avewere evacuated last night and will probably be out of their apartments for at least a week, possibly longer. There was damage to electric and gas equipment.

Some of the residents of 180 & 170 E Hartsdale Aveare seniors, on fixed incomes. Staying in a hotel could be expensive. Although no one has made a request for temporary shelter so that they can find an inexpensive place to live – if you are willing to provide shelter to a floodvictim (at no cost), please advise. I’ll forward that information to residents of 180 & 170 East Hartsdale Ave, as they reach out to me for help.  Please e mail me at pfeiner@greenburghny.com if you want to help.

The town is currently reviewing all that happened yesterday.  If you have any comments or suggestions please advise. There is always room for improvement.
