Hours before it struck I took a ride around the town. Roads were mostly deserted cops deployed and digging in.










On Upper East Side where I work it was terrible around midnight. Flying scaffolding and downed trees. Luckily power was never lost. Spikes were not enough to trigger generators.

Down the block by a school. There was FDR Drive now under water. Roosevelt Island across.







School was flooded but never lost the power. Aren't our electrical engineers the best? Even street lights were on.

After couple days I tried to get out to the airport. The only tunnel opened was Lincoln and I spent 3 hours in traffic.







Rationed gas it's my day. Long time ago it happened I've heard.







Rode along the shore. Staten Island.





Coney Island driftwood everywhere.






Continental Brooklyn mostly intact but coastal areas battered.







Lots of military traffic with relief missions.







Sky Manor airport lost several aircrafts.






Central Jersey Regional Airport.







Far Rockaway pictures are too depressing to post you saw it all in the news.

OK. This was today. The armada with carrier stays a mile or so offshore.










































These parking lots are now dump sites. All peoples houses.
