powerHouse Arena Sustains ‘Major Damage’ from Hurricane Sandy

 

Hurricane Sandy pounded powerHouse Arena and the Brooklyn bookstore sustained “major damage” during the storm. Below, we’ve collected tweets and images from the store’s Twitter feed (including the photo of powerHouse Books CEO Daniel Power).

Located in the DUMBO neighborhood, the sprawling shop is a “gallery, boutique, book store, performance, and events space” that has hosted countless literary events. The bookstore published a series of tweets about the damage, showing how the water rose 28 inches inside the store during the storm.

Follow this link to visit the store online. The owners “hope to re-open soon.” In the meantime, here are some ways to help Hurricane Sandy victims on the East Coast.
