Our Instagram friend Daniel O’Neill @pixelatedfuture sent us this photo essay of Greenpoint flooding from last night in what looks like North Greenpoint near Clay. I have asked him to confirm locations. If anyone has photos of this area from this morning to compare please send to Greenpointers at gmail dot com.
Incredible, sorry I missed it
The last picture (with the tree and pickup truck) is at the corner of McGuinness Blvd and Eagle St. The same pickup truck is in the same location on the Google Street View.
We had some flooding at Freeman and Franklin last night. The neighborhood rallied to fill sandbags and saved the basement unit from flooding. Others on the block didn’t fare so well. We caught the rising water in a time lapse video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ulIWGalKzmo&feature=youtu.be
All the pictures from last night are from Eagle-Ash St on Mcguiness. Headed up to the Pulaski bridge stairs and turned back. The second to last shot is from Greenpoint Ave/Transmitter Park which is off West St.
