rainy roadWe didn’t panic…


So far so calm, though unusually empty

On the eve of the hurricane, New Yorkers don’t change their plans, especially the long awaited ones… The riverbank location in Astoria Park was a perfect set for wedding photographs with no people around and dramatic set with stormy Manhattans skyline.

Empty park and empty parking lot

Empty terrace


Empty street

No more friendly and calm East River

And then we take a pre-Sandy ride:

Whoever has been to New York would remember that area around Apple Store on 5th avenue is buzzing 24/7.

Times Square more empty than ever

At least the Naked Cowboy won’t get his clothes wet…

Why are we the only only ones heading downtown?

Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island far far away

The creepy howling sound of wind

Verrazano Bridge

Drama of Nature audience

Friend’s boat still in place, check

One hour to landfall on BQE. There is Manhattan in the back…




Height of flooded water in LIC

Find on the image: the dangling crane on 57th street

Sidewalk hydrant public sink in East Village without power and water

Messed up ATMs at South Street Seaport

Total renovation needed…

Battery Park Underpass


Macao in Tribeca getting ready to open on generator power

Center of Soho as empty as it can possibly be

Park Avenue


West Village. Major crossings illuminated with torches. Smaller ones still in the dark.

Let there be light!!!
