Gorillas in the Storm

Happier days
I've been keeping a hopeful eye out on my eastbound commutes. But it seems the big blue gorilla that graces the Hamilton Avenue Auto Auction ("#1 Auto Auction in Brooklyn") was a casualty to Sandy. It's come back from deflation before so maybe there's still reason to hope. What's FEMA's policy on inflatable mascots?

  1. This is worrying news. It's possible that it was deflated prior to the storm as a precaution? As you say, it has gone missing before, sometimes for long periods of time. I'm very fond of that ape, and last year I made a pilgrimage to the auto yard. Very impressive close up.
