Bed-Stuy Area Files More Than 600 Damage Complaints After Storm

After the remnants of Hurricane Ida pounded the city last week, officials asked New Yorkers to call 311 to report damage to their homes or streets.

In Bed-Stuy, residents appear to have heeded that call. From the evening of Sept. 1 — when the storm rolled in — through Wednesday, neighbors in Bed-Stuy’s ZIP codes have filed 617 complaints to 311 about flooding, water damage, fallen trees and utility outages, city records show. That’s more than three times than the week before, when only 198 complaints came in.

The ZIP codes also includes parts of Williamsburg, Brownsville, Crown Heights and Clinton Hill.
