Is It Worth It to Stay In FiDi Once the Power Comes Back On?

New, 30 comments

Welcome to Friday Open Threads, wherein we'll pass the mic to readers to speak up about topics of interest, distress, horror, etc. Have something you want discussed? Let us know.

This week's open thread topic comes from a resident of the Financial District who's been displaced by the hurricane. Our questioner wonders: "If our power is restored within the next two weeks, is it even a good idea to stay in our apartments? Won't there be a higher incidence of rodents, potential mold, etc?" Other residents of FiDi (or evacuated buildings elsewhere in the city), how are you dealing with this question?

Another resident who is already leaning toward leaving wonders how it's possible to move out of a building without power. Insights from any fellow Zone A evacuees welcomed in the comments.
