More than a year after Superstorm Sandy knocked out power in Hudson River Park, work is still ongoing to restore electricity to some parts of the park’s Greenwich Village section south of 14th St. Portable electric generators are being used in this area to provide light at night. To date, $31 million has been spent on Sandy-related repairs for Hudson River Park, according to the Hudson River Park Trust. Up to 90 to 95 percent of that amount will be covered by FEMA and some of the rest by New York State. The Trust, in the end, will be liable for from $1 million to $3 million of the total, according to Madelyn Wils, the agency’s president.
