Proteoscope » Hurricane Sandy The Blog of Proteus Gowanus Thu, 12 Nov 2015 16:51:13 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Closing Temporarily Due to Sandy Flooding Thu, 01 Nov 2012 01:39:30 +0000 Proteus Gowanus and our Projects-In-Residence ObservatoryMorbid Anatomy LibraryReanimation Library and Hall of Gowanus, prepared for the worst before Hurricane Sandy and we are very happy to announce that our preparations were unnecessary. We feel very grateful that our floors and books and artifacts and shelves were not bathed in toxic sludge. The floodwaters around the Gowanus area barely penetrated our galleries, seeping slightly through our alley door but covering only a bit of the floor. We did, however, lose all power due to extensive flooding in the basement of our building, which is now filled with six feet of standing water and has extinguished the power indefinitely.

As a result, we must close our doors for the next two weeks, hoping to reopen on November 15 in time for that night’s Fixers Collective session at 7pm. This means that our Translation Workshop for the Monolingual this Friday is postponed, as is the opening of our War Games Room and the launching of our Battle Film Series. In addition, all Observatory and Morbid Anatomy events between now and mid-November are also cancelled unless you hear otherwise.
