Sandy Aftermath: Lower East Side Edition [PHOTOS]
This image has been archived or removed.
As the sun rises today over New York, it’s hard to find words to describe Hurricane Sandy’s impact. Quite honestly, the last time we awoke to such eerie calm after incredible disaster was 9/11. Thankfully all indications point to that being one of the only similarities between the two events. Our reporters have started to face the reality of draining batteries on their mobile devices, so our remote base of operations hasn’t been getting updates as frequently as it had been yesterday. We’ll do our best to update as often as possible.
What we’ve managed to gather is that there is lots of downed foliage. There are still major power outages in the Lower East Side. Construction site plywood has been left in shambles. The surge at South Street has started to recede. Lots of wood blockers still in the street on lower Pike.
If you have any photos, please send to email@example.com and we will continue to update this gallery. We’re also working on getting larger versions of the photos below. Keep checking back for updates.
