Well New York, it has been an intense few days. I was lucky. My Upper West Side abode I came out relatively unscathed, (well minus suffering withdrawl from lack of local Chinese food). When I ventured out today there were some branches down and some water on the streets, but overall things looked pretty normal in my neighborhood.
But this is not the case for thousands of New Yorkers, as well as residents from New Jersey, Connecticut, and even Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, and many other places that were in Sandy’s destructive path. While many of these people are without power or supplies, my thoughts and prayers go out most to those that lost their homes or their loved ones. Here are some of the most hectic storm images that I have come across, just as a reminder to all of us that we should never take things for granted, and that when people are suffering, we must do our part to help.
TAXIS SUBMERGED IN HOBOKEN
ALPHABET CITY SUBMERGED
CITY’S STORM SURGE

For those of you who got out fine with no or minimal damage, or lucky enough to live above 40th street and have power, be thankful. But please remember there are several people in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut that are having serious troubles. If you were unaffected by the storm, don’t forget to help out.
