EAST VILLAGE ? To give everyone a sense of how much food is going to be wasted as a result of Hurricane Sandy-induced power outage, Amanda Cohen of Dirt Candy tweeted a picture of her first round of garbage: "Round 1 of our clean up/out. 10 bags of rotting food. Thanks #sandy." Tiny restaurant, so much rotting food. [Twitter]

SOUTH STREET SEAPORT ? Papermag checks in on the heavily-flooded neighborhood, where Grandma's House co-owner Kevin Barry says: "It's a war zone. But nobody's been here to see how bad it is and the cops are busy in other places. Everyone's trying to clean up by themselves." See Eater's reactions here. [Papermag]

MIDTOWN ? That dangerous, dangling crane at One57 hasn't actually fallen on anything, but it has had a major casualty: restaurants on that block, like the Russian Tea Room, which have had to close. [EaterWire, Curbed NY]

HALLOWEEN WIRE ? Oh right, last night was Halloween, huh? Eater National put together a slideshow of 15 people dressed up as Guy Fieri. Head over there for a full throttle look at Halloween. [Eater National]
