Last week’s heavy rains had Harlem City Hall feeling a little under the weather and under water – twice.
Last Tuesday’s storm, which dumped more than 5 inches on Harlem, flooded City Hall and left the carpet wet throughout the building. When a second storm came through on Saturday, the building flooded again.
“This was nothing like we have had in the past,” said Harlem city manager Jason Rizner. “There has been a little water that seeped in during heavy rains, but nothing like this. But when you get that kind of rainfall, this is the kind of thing that will happen.”
