West Side Highway, near Church St turned into a river, complete with rapids.

A crane that’s starting to come down in NYC at 57th Street between 6th and 7th Avenue.

Water rushing over my feet in Battery Park. The water came in so quickly. When we first got to this spot, it wasn’t coming over the ledge at all, but within 10 minutes, it was completely covering my feet.

Joggers on FDR Drive, which was closed to vehicle traffic.

Sandbags in lower Manhattan.

Pedestrians walking around large debris that had fallen off of a building near Columbus Circle.

Battery Park flooding. This photo was taken about 15 minutes after we arrived at this spot, and when we first got there, it wasn’t flooding at all.

Here are photos from the day after the storm:

A street in Manhattan somewhere is missing its stop sign.

People in line to fill buckets with water out of a water bubbler near Cherry St and Market St in the Lower East side of Manhattan. The residents in the buildings in that area do not have running water. They also do not have power. Check out this website if you would like to help them out: https://lowereastside.recovers.org/

Lower Manhattan is in the dark because of the power outages. The only lights in this photo are from cars driving down Broadway Ave.

Pretty ironic photo – Looking through the window of a store that was flooded on the Lower East Side of Manhattan during hurricane Sandy. A wet shirt is hanging over letters that spell out “dry.”

Most shops were closed today in lower Manhattan due to storm damage and power outages. But, some businesses brought their much needed items out to the sidewalks to sell to people, such as batteries, flashlights, and candles.

Police tape littered the ground all over Manhattan. It was put up before the storm in some places in an attempt to keep people out of flood zones.
