While many office and residential towers in Lower Manhattan are back in business, it may be weeks or even months before others are able to be occupied, the New York Times reported.

With their mechanical and electrical systems destroyed, some buildings along the water’s edge in the Financial District may not reopen until next year, the Times said.

Buildings such as 125 Maiden Lane, 200 Water Street and 2 Gold Street sustained such significant damage that they have not been reopened, and may not reopen for a month or more.

As The Real Deal has reported, an estimated 17 million square feet of office space in Lower Manhattan were impacted by the flooding.

The Jewish Daily Forward is one tenant of 125 Maiden Lane, which also houses non-profits such as UNICEF and the International Planned Parenthood Federation. “We had prepared for an emergency,” Samuel Norich, publisher of the Forward, told the Times. “The emergency we had prepared for was an act of terrorism, not this.” [NYT] —Guelda Voien
