Here are a few very minor pictures of damage and traffic.  I haven’t honestly been down to worst affected areas yet (which include where my apartment is located).   Getting around the City was quite difficult today as there has been tremendous traffic.  A lot of that has been caused by the dangling crane on the roof of a very high building on 57th Street.  Basically this means that everything going up to 57th is somewhat gridlocked and everything going down to 57th is blocked – but if you are going downtown below 57th (as in the right hand side of the picture above) you are okay.  More or less.  (Of course, I understand that there are no traffic lights below 39th.)

New Yorkers are great walkers but it’s a bit tiring.  Tomorrow some subway service will be restored. I have to applaud Mayor Bloomberg and city workers (and others) who have been out picking up tree limbs, etc. and moving ahead with the clean-up.

    Thanks for the update, k–many trying days ahead after something like this.Watching footage today, I’m amazed at how far inland the winds and water came, and how much damage they did. Let us know when you get to see how your home fared.

      Will do. At the moment focusing on getting to my job or places job work can be done–subway will start tomorrow but won’t go downtown. Parts of the city are very normal but we’ve been traveling on foot so it takes a fair amount of time. Tomorrow should be faster.

    i imagine it has not been easy to get around, all the tree damage reminds me of the derecho that came through here over the summer….continuing to keep you and your city in my thoughts….and hoping all is well at your apartment…

    K…thank God you are writing about this in NYC. I haven’t had the courage to do so. The devastation is so huge it’s beyond scope of my comprehension. I deeply appreciate someone ‘on the ground’ writing and especially posting pix of this area.

    This morning, I’m going to try to buck up my courage and face what has happened in NJ, my birth state, and where the majority of my family live.

    Stay safe and warm, dear….and be careful. Night without much light is a scary proposition in any city. In Atlanta, we lost some power but the winds actually knocked me to the ground. Trees suffered mostly. Nothing like what you in NYC and those in NJ have suffered.
