The Wrath of Sandy

October 31, 2012

No street lights.

 

A dangling crane.

Trees.

Scary. Very scary.

 

No phone.  No hot water. No music. No lights.   No food.  No heat.  No coffee.

No electricity.

This blog is sent to you from a sidewalk in front of Starbucks where I am peaching on their WiFi as there are so many people in there you can not get in the place .

Cycling 40 blocks for a cup of coffee.  No fun.

And at least  four more days of the same.

The sole consolation: it is quiet.  Very, very quiet.  18th century quiet.

The following images were taken the morning after in various parts of the city as I made my way up town in search of coffee and food, in that order.

Silence
