NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – One Brooklyn neighborhood took a big step today on the road back from superstorm Sandy.
“Oh my god. It’s just amazing,” said Sandra Sutton, supervising librarian at the Red Hook Public Libary, which reopened Tuesday.
After the storm, they had 18 inches of water.
“We lost about 2,500-plus, I would say, books,” said Linda Johnson, President and CEO of the Brooklyn Library.
“It was just really bad,” Sutton told WCBS 880 reporter Peter Haskell.
