Harlem Condo Life continued to tour a few favorite spots in Harlem and the surrounding nabes to bear witness to hurricane Sandy’s aftermath.  Below are a few pictures and a video.

This video shows where the Hudson River flooded over the West Side Highway to the median which divides uptown from downtown traffic around 115th Street.

Hundreds of thousands of evacuees have already rushed to emergency shelters with their loved ones, and your support is desperately needed to help keep as many people safe from the storm as possible.  Click here to get involved or donate to The Red Cross.

Hurricane Irene last year failed to live up to the doomsday expectations for the city (thank goodness!), but that’s no reason to be  unprepared for Hurricane Sandy this time around.

We stupidly saw –but didn’t buy– a large flashlight in the 125th street Duane Reade yesterday when we were getting preliminary supplies, when we went back this morning all flashlights had vanished… Got the bright idea of going to United Hardware on FDB to buy an electric lantern but first we popped into Rite Aid to see what emergency supplies we could acquire there, not even knowing exactly what we wanted. We wasted 20 minutes standing in line with 2 unneeded LED powered candles as there were no flashlights , and just as we got to the front of the line, Marcus Samuelsson rushed in –what is he buying??? Harlem’s Superstar Chef must know what to buy!!–but we were so close to checkout, we couldn’t  follow him (plus that’s stalkerish anyway). Finally onto United Hardware where we were informed that they had sold out of the last battery lantern 15 minutes beforehand. All out of flashlights too.

Then we fought our way through the throngs at Best Yet–the management is trying their best to have some control and process and they had extra staff in place to facilitate checkout which is great, but the lines are long. Back out on the street we noticed brunch in full swing at many local restaurants–New Yorkers are so irrepressible –and lots of tourists nonchalantly smiling, strolling and even riding rental bikes up FDB, boy are they going to be in for a surprise later…

Only one more thing to buy–actually the most important supply, wine. The Winery is trying to keep their regular hours tonight they say, but they’ll be open at least until 6.

Everyone please be safe and smart during this sustained storm.

Today is the relaunch of The Nook at Red Rooster.  Located in a pocket of the restaurant at its entry, The Nook sells specialty savory items and sweets created by Red Rooster Harlem’s pastry chef, Deborah Racicot, whose impressive resume includes Gramercy Tavern, Côte Basque, Aquavit, Picholine and, most recently, Gotham Bar and Grill, where she was pastry chef.

With The Nook, Deborah and Marcus want to offer locals quick, healthy and affordable bites to eat.  The Nook’s menu will be an extension of Red Rooster Harlem’s global comfort food, with both savory and sweet selections.

Sandwiches will include the Chickety Split, fried chicken thigh served on a biscuit with sweet chili mayo and Haitian pikliz ($6.95); Hoagie Svenska, a soft pretzel bun piled with Helga’s meatballs, quick pickles and lingonberry mayo ($6.95); and Atta Boy, a freshly baked roti wrap filled with fried plantain, yucca and curried lentils ($7.95).  The sweet offerings will include cakes, cookies and pastries such as Lingon Bullar, brioche dough rolled in cinnamon sugar and lingonberry jam ($1.95); Yamma Jamma Coffee Cake, sweet potato cake layered with mission fig jam, topped with cinnamon streusel (2.95); and “A” Train Special, a curry-spiced oatmeal blueberry cookie with a light cream cheese filling ($1.50).  A variety of drinks will also be available including hot and cold Ambessa tea, from the line of four teas Marcus recently launched with Harney & Sons.

The Nook will be open seven days a week, from 11:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday; and from 10:00 a.m. to 5: 30 p.m., Saturdays and Sundays; with breakfast service coming shortly.
