I hope this email finds you warm, safe and with water, heat and electricity. Westbeth was in the surge and we are now getting back to normal, although there are no elevators at this date so members will have to walk three flights.
Previously, like many of you, there was no water, electricity or heat. That has been restored a couple of days ago but some neighbors on my floor still have no power. Experts have been brought in.
In some ways, it was great as people pulled together and brought up buckets of water from hydrants and food was sent from restaurants or residents who had extra. But my son called Westbeth, Hotel Rwanda. Today a talk will be given on how to restore works of art as many had studios in the basement and paintings and sculptures floated for over a week and now are starting to mildew. Sound recording studios are a total loss.
But now we are ready to begin again as I hope you all are.
I have a list of readers but I do not know if they can attend so we can have ladies and gents in waiting.
