Black Beast Garage Withstands the Fury of Superstorm Sandy

Superstorm Sandy blasted the Northeast, Long Island and the Black Beast Garage at "Waterfront at Roslyn" that borders on a Hempstead Harbor canal.

Although the storm breeched the building's bulkhead, the water stopped seven feet from the garage!

Stay safe,

Howard Kroplick

The Long Island Region of the Classic Car Club of America visited the Waterfront at Roslyn back in May 2012.

After the storm, the Waterfront at Roslyn was still very much standing with electricity!

The water from the harbor surged over the bulkhead last night.

As seen by the debris line, the water came within seven feet of the garage. We got lucky!!

I am glad to see that the cars have escaped damage.  I wish everyone well during the recovery from this terrible storm.

Whew! A little close for comfort, but good to know what conditions are tolerable and when you need another plan. Ken
