Galapagos Art Space, post-Sandy (via Galapagos Facebook)

DUMBO was hit pretty hard by Hurricane Sandy, with a lot of flooding. Among the businesses affected by the storm was Galapagos Art Space that suffered five feet of water. But community aid has been great -- more than 50 people showed up to help on Wednesday -- and the venue hopes to reopen by the weekend. If you'd like to help financially, you can pledge money to their Smallknot campaign.

Photos from Galapagos' post-Sandy mess and its clean-up are below.

Galapagos hasn't been an art space since they moved to Dumbo. How often do you hear of a concert happening there? All they do now is hold weddings.

What about insurance? Why are we being called all the time to help private ventures and musicians/dj's freak injuries when the idea of insurance was specifically invented for those purposes?

You commenters are heartless. We as a community help our neighbors when they're in need because that's what decent people do.

What do you think the deductible is on their insurance? And how long do you think it will get for them to recoup even some of it? Let alone the lost earnings from a week of closure, and the employees who haven't been able to earn a living?

Since I've lived here, I've always known Galapagos to be supportive for local benefits, for the public schools, for the Creative Mornings workshops, donating space whenever they can. This is the chance for us to do something good back for them.
