Any News from Stuy Town/PCV About the Hurricane That's Coming?
Zone A, in deeper orange, are under a mandatory evacuation order from the Mayor. Stuy Town/Peter Cooper Village are in Zone B, which carry a potential flooding warning. Click on map to make it larger.
Some info about the forthcoming hurricane and New York City:
So far, I've not come across any management plans for this hurricane, which is supposed to hit us on Sunday. I assume they are making some plans.
I do feel that, structurally, ST/PCV will do fine, though there may be flooding and trees downed. Obviously, everyone should stock up on water (most important) and non-perishable food items.
Update: A commentator alerts those who have cars parked on the east side of Stuy Town that it may be best to move your cars before the hurricane descends upon us, as those areas will probably be flooded if the storm lives up to the worst expectations.
Also: Lux Living has new page up with valuable info on the hurricane and ST/PCV. There's a map present of the various zones Stuy Town and Peter Cooper Village are in.
Update: Here it is, from management:

August 27, 7:20pm Update: By now, hot water, at least in the kitchen, should be shut down throughout most of ST/PCV. From news reports, it appears Irene has lessened in intensity, but it is still a dangerous storm, as lives have already been lost (some due to falling trees). There is a possibility that Con Ed will be turning off electricity throughout parts of Zone A, and maybe even into other areas, so it is NOT ADVISABLE TO USE ELEVATORS. This is not an official warning, but my own. If you are indoors already, stay indoors, and "enjoy" the weather.
