Root Hill Cafe posted the above picture of a VERY flooded Fourth Avenue (at the intersection of Carroll Street) on their Twitter account yesterday morning at around 8:05am following the intense thunderstorm that rolled through the NYC area this morning. Gowanus Your Face Off called Root Hill and spoke with Maria, who verified that the cafe is open for business today with no significant damage.

I haven’t been down to the basement to check for damage yet. There’s probably some. But we’re open for business. We’ve gotten to be experts at this, so we know to how to go through it, clean it and sanitize it.

Glad to hear that Root Hill is OK.

Here’s another picture of the flooded intersection from Pat Kiernan’s Twitter:
