Red Hook, After the Hurricane
The media has been dutifully covering the recovery efforts across New York City after Hurricane Sandy. One of the most affected neighborhoods was Red Hook, Brooklyn. Our sister project, the Red Hook Community Justice Center was hit particularly hard by the hurricane and has still not been able to re-open their building for operations. They are currently up and running out of a temporary space in the Brooklyn Criminal Courthouse.
Recovery efforts have been in full-swing, with Center for Court Innovation staff members as well as Justice Corps interns from all of our partner sites participating in helping the community as they begin to put the pieces back together. You can follow their efforts on the Red Hook Community Justice Center's blog, here.
