I cannot conceive of the damage Hurricane Sandy has cast upon our city. My words cannot do justice to the damage. See for yourself at the NYTimes link of pictures taken by people all around the city and beyond.
The Con Ed Power Station on 14th Street and C had two massive explosions. Just a few blocks away from our building. No electricity or cell service below 26th Street or so.
Our building was not flooded. The basement was bone dry. Unbelievable, since the water was at mid- car height just a block away on Ave. B.
Is this the new normal for New York City and the surrounding region? Last year we had a snow storm in mid-October, the year before that it was Hurricane Irene. Mother Nature keeps bitch slapping us...maybe it's time to listen. Watch out New Orleans, we may soon be writing songs about meeting each other down by the levee...we just gotta build one first. Or order one from Amazon.
