Nothing over dramatic, just what I saw..
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
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
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
West Village. Major crossings illuminated with torches. Smaller ones still in the dark.
Let there be light!!!
