THE STORY:

All of us at the Prospect Park Alliance hope that you have come through Hurricane Sandy without serious harm. We are aware that some of you may still be without power, that downed trees, street signs, and debris are still to be cleaned up in almost all neighborhoods, and that most - including a number of our own staff - are still stranded without reliable transportation. We extend our sympathies to any of you who have suffered damage, and wish you a quick recovery.
 
With a storm the size of Hurricane Sandy, it was inevitable that Prospect Park would sustain  some damage, and I'm sad to report that the damage is widespread and significant.  Hundreds of trees have been destroyed or severely damaged, paths and roads are blocked, light poles, signs and fencing have been knocked over, and Prospect Park Lake was blown over its banks on the southeast side.

In Prospect Park, work is already underway clearing dangerous trees, exposed wires, hanging limbs and other obstructions and debris. Once this has been done, we will have a chance to undertake a thorough assessment of all damage and costs of repair, and to frame a plan for the long term work that will be required to restore the Park.

We know how much you love and rely on your Park. Please also know that the Alliance and the Parks Department are working hard so that Prospect Park can be re-opened as quickly as possible. We hope to see you there soon, but in the meantime, please stay safe!
