The area around the South Street Seaport was severly flooded. Most Buildings in and around the Seaport have suffered major water damage. Salt water from the river destroyed electrical and heating systems. As of January 13th, most of the stores are still closed. There is no timetable when the repairs will be completed. Property owners are still waiting for insurance companies and the government for payment. It will take months if not longer to replace the damaged electrical and heating and vent systems.
