Images of a Shut Down City: Hurricane Irene Nears New York

August 28, 2011

Intrigued by the silence and emptiness that seemed to pervade a city that is, at times, nothing short of cacophony,   as evening fell under a light drizzle I headed out on my bike to take a look around and take it all in.  On the way I snapped a few photos and was hoping to snap a whole lot more but then the drizzle turned to downpour and it was time to head home.

As I rushed past the Bowery shelter I could not help but notice that the line of silent soaking men standing in the downpour hoping to get in was at least 100 strong.

The sight was jarring and put many things in perspective.
