On my ride home today…S train between Grand Central and Times Square is donned with cartoons of the Macy’s Day Thanksgiving Parade, including Hello Kitty in her plane.

broken cranes

 

Hurricane Sandy snaps this crane like it was nothing.  Stuck inside this week due to the electricity outages & halt in subways in lower Manhattan.  I had to leave the house yesterday for a work meeting on site and saw the crane first hand from the window as well as on my walk home.  This has all been an interesting and surreal experience to see the effect on NYC life when public transportation and power outages cut off  half the island.  Only half the island can begin to get back to normal and even then it’s seemingly less than “normal”.  Brooklyn has  been cut off unless you have a car or can catch a bus and even then it is a longer ride than normal.  Sometimes it’s just faster to walk.  My cab ride t the meeting was tortuously long and more expensive than usual.  I opted to walk 40 blocks home to get some air and avoid that experience again.  The abundance of car traffic that has flooded the streets–this city is not made for the level of traffic it’s seeing now.

I’m fortunate to not have been affected by the storm and hope that all those who have are able to get back on their feet ASAP.  Been reaching out to all my NYC friends to find out if they are ok or need anything.  Glad to hear everyone is safe and sound, finding water, power, and support from friends when they can!
