Michelle Williams, Jason Segel's Brooklyn Apartment Building Underwater Post-Hurricane Sandy
Like hundreds of other New York City buildings, the couple's Brooklyn apartment (located in the NYC borough's artsy Red Hook neighborhood) flooded as Hurricane Sandy unleashed its wrath on the East Coast Monday, Oct. 29.
According to the Daily Mail, Williams and Segel's residence, located in a converted 19th century warehouse, as well as the surrounding area are still largely underwater, just a few months after the Oscar nominee and the How I Met Your Mother star, both 32, moved in.
A TIME magazine report from Thursday details the extent of the damage facing Red Hook residents and business owners.
In the superstorm's wake, the flooded neighborhood's electricity has been shut off. Fairway, the grocery store located underneath the renovated warehouse where Williams and Segel reside, was forced to dump nearly all of its wares. (TIME reports that, as the week stretched on, a "stench of meat beginning to rot hung over the [store's] muddied rear entrance.")
As Red Hook slowly begins to rebuild itself, Williams and Segel (as well as Williams' 7-year-old daughter, Matilda) are reportedly staying at the brownstone, located in Brooklyn's more inland Boerum Hill area, which she purchased in 2005 with her late partner Heath Ledger.
