Bloomberg Diverts Food, Generators from Devastated Staten Island to NYC Marathon

Email Article
Fresh off his "climate disruption"-driven endorsement of President Obama, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has chosen to divert critical food supplies and power generators from desperate residents of Staten Island to Sunday's New York City Marathon. Gothamist reports:
[T]hose urging the city to halt the run believe that the thousands of Marathon volunteers could direct their efforts towards post-Sandy relief and cleanup, "and they also argue that the event will divert thousands of police from important hurricane-related duties." But despite petitions circulating, work started up again yesterday on the Marathon route.
A tipster, who wishes to remain anonymous, told us there were lots of workers in and out of the park today, who had "started before the storm and then came back starting yesterday." Trailers are lined up from around 71st to 66th Streets on Central Park West, a food truck was set up today, and "generators have been sitting there at least a week." The tents that were taken down prior to the storm have also been set back up, and there is a stage set up near 73rd Street.
Considering all the volunteer help and NYPD attention that's already being diverted to the Marathon, the added sight of generators and food being channeled to the event is probably going to strike some New Yorkers as a little misplaced—we're thinking of the ones who are currently lined up waiting for the National Guard to ration out MREs and bottles of water.
Staten Island residents are frantically calling for help, ABC News reported on Thursday:
The residents of Staten Island are pleading for help from elected officials, begging for gasoline, food and clothing three days after Sandy slammed the New York City borough.
“We’re going to die! We’re going to freeze! We got 90-year-old people!” Donna Solli told visiting officials. “You don’t understand. You gotta get your trucks down here on the corner now. It’s been three days!”
Staten Island was one of the hardest-hit communities in New York City. More than 80,000 residents are still without power. Many are homeless, and at least 19 people died on Staten Island because of the storm.
Staten Island Borough President Jim Molinaro blasted Mayor Bloomberg's decision to divert needed supplies from Staten Island to this Sunday's New York City marathon:
Molinaro urged New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg Wednesday to cancel Sunday’s New York City Marathon. The race’s staging area is on Staten Island and Molinaro said it would be “crazy, asinine,” to have the race after what has happened.
“My God. What we have here is terrible, a disaster,” Molinaro said Wednesday. “If they want to race, let them race with themselves. This is no time for a parade. A marathon is a parade. Now is the time to put your shoulder to the wheel. If they want to prepare for something, let them prepare for the election, not a marathon.”
“Do you realize how many police officers you need for a marathon?” he asked. “There are people looting stores on Midland Avenue. There is looting taking place in the homes on the South Shore that were destroyed. That is where we need the police.”
In New York City, apparently these days the Bloomberg show must go on -- even at the expense of those truly in need.

Marathon Runners Form Protest Group To Spurn Starting Line And Volunteer On Staten Island Instead




Penny Krakoff
[UPDATE BELOW] A Brooklyn woman scheduled to run in the NYC Marathon is gathering a group of runners to volunteer on hurricane-battered Staten Island Sunday instead of running the race. Penny Krakoff, a social worker who lives in Crown Heights, is entered in the race, but tells us she can't participate in good conscience. Instead, she plans to user her bib to take the official bus transporting marathon runners to the starting line on Staten Island—and then spurn the race to spend the day volunteering.
Krakoff says she'll collect extra food and and clothing to take with her on the bus and distribute it on Staten Island. Her neighborhood was spared the brunt of Hurricane Sandy's wrath, but Krakoff is well aware of the devastation wrought on Staten Island and elsewhere, and she's part of a growing number of New Yorkers who feel the Marathon should be postponed. She writes:
I cannot start a 26.2 mile run in Staten Island—people are missing, stranded, in need of resources. Brooklyn and Queens have equal devastation. Parts of Manhattan are without electricity, water, major hospitals are closed. The Bronx too has its own challenges. Today I will volunteer at a city evacuation shelter. Sunday morning I will catch the marathon bus to Staten Island. Not planning to run. Plan to volunteer instead and gather resources (extra clothes, bottles of water, food from runners at the start). Let's not waste resources and attention on a foot race. Who is with me?

Generator for the marathon (Gothamist)
As of this morning, none of the other Marathon runners have joined Krakoff, but give it time—she only announced this last night at 11 p.m. The decision to go forward with the Marathon is quickly developing into a public relations nightmare for the Bloomberg administration, which has been generally praised for its initial handling of the hurricane preparations. Yesterday we reported that the Marathon was using generators and volunteers to organize the finish line in Central Park, and we wondered if this was an appropriate use of resources in a city so recently devastated by a natural disaster. Today that's the cover of the New York Post. Krakoff is still exploring the best way to volunteer on Staten Island on Sunday, and she's reached out to Borough President James Molinaro. We'll update as more Staten Island volunteering details become available, but the Borough President's website has a list of needed supplies and where to donate them. Yesterday, Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis asked volunteers to bring donations of clothing, blankets, food, towels, water, and pet food to Rab's Country Lanes at 1600 Hylan Blvd. in Dongan Hills until 4 p.m.
Another Facebook group is organizing a boycott of the Marathon, and it will be interesting to see how many of those runners will join Krakoff or volunteer elsewhere.

Update 10:35 a.m.:
Another group of Marathon runners has also been organizing independently of Krakoff's efforts. According to their Facebook page:
Runners will show up at the starting line, but will break off en masse at different points of the city to deliver supplies to places hardest hit and without power. This will mean departing from the race, to head to various buildings, running up and down stairs delivering water and canned goods, etc. Runners will show up to the marathon, as scheduled. Runners who want to help should post the words, “I’M HERE TO HELP!” somewhere on their bodies.

Wintry storm headed to D.C. area, possibly bringing snow

A storm featuring strong winds and rain are forecast to follow in Superstorm Sandy’s path on Wednesday, threatening battered coastal towns and perhaps bringing the D.C. area this year’s first glimpse of snow.


National Weather Service meteorologist Jared Klein said the storm packs strong winds and rain, but is “more typical of what you could expect this time of year.”

“We’re not looking at heavy rainfall,” Mr. Klein said, “but we could get gusty winds out of the north and the chance for snow could be closer to the I-95 corridor than Sandy.”

The storm, defined by meteorologists as a nor’easter, is brewing off the North Carolina coast. A nor’easter gathers its strength from cold air blowing off the Atlantic Ocean.

The wintry mix that could hit the D.C. area would be the result of rain and show, Mr. Klein said. Residents likely won’t see more than an inch of rain, but winds could reach between 30 mph and 40 mph, with stronger winds hitting areas closer to the Chesapeake Bay.

The height of the storm should come between Wednesday night and Thursday morning, Mr. Klein said. As of Monday, no watches or warnings related to the storm had been issued by his office.

News of the storm comes one week after the East Coast was pummeled by the superstorm, a combination of Hurricane Sandy and a nor’easter. Coastal towns in New Jersey and New York City continue to struggle with the clean-up caused by Sandy. Electricity to parts of Lower Manhattan was only restored over the weekend, subway tunnels still require water to be pumped out, and the boardwalk and amusement park at the popular town of Seaside, N.J. was washed out to sea.

Mr. Klein said the areas of the United States hit hardest by Superstorm Sandy last week are likely to be hit hard by this nor’easter.

The D.C. area largely avoided the brunt of the superstorm, though thousands of residents lost power due to fallen trees and downed wires.

Dominion Virginia spokeswoman Le-Ha Anderson said the power company was “already in planning stages,” even though the forecast does not anticipate any significant impact on their operations.

At the peak of last week’s superstorm, about 200,000 customers in Northern Virginia were without power, Ms. Anderson said. Power was restored to the last customer Thursday night.

“Our crews are all being notified that we need people on standby, and depending on the storm we may add additional shifts,” Ms. Anderson said. “We’re making sure all the shifts are filled and keeping a close eye [on the weather].”

David Buck, spokesman for the Maryland State Highway Administration, said all of the state roads were open as of Monday and maintenance crews were already conducting conference calls in preparation for the storm.

Because rain is in the forecast, road crews won’t salt the roads ahead of the storm, Mr. Buck said.

He said his agency was still sending crews on Sunday to Garrett County, Md., to help with clean up from the superstorm. Unlike the coast, which was slammed with rain, the western side of Maryland was buried under three feet of wet snow.

“The problem was snow accumulation and so many trees were down, “Mr. Buck said. “It was just a very slow process to clear the trees, get wires out of the way then plow.”

Andrew Minick, an employee at Hardesty’s True Value hardware store in Grantsville, Md., said the store lost power last Monday and didn’t get it back until Friday evening.

“We had a generator, so we ran a couple lights, and the computer up front to ring people through,” Mr. Minick said. “But we didn’t print out receipts, they were hand written.”

News of another storm headed toward the town, however, didn’t phase the Grantsville resident. Mr. Minick said “everyone’s fairly used” to bad weather, including snow storms.

“It’s just a matter of the power companies frantically trying to get things up and running,” he said, adding that for the residents of Garrett County, “It’s just another day.”
