Postcard from Staten Island: Hurricane Sandy (originally posted on November 19, 2012)

November 16, 2012

Howdy, everyone.

Spent the day in Staten Island. Oak Beach. 
Sun shining here.
Freezing when you have no heat.
Walking among the detritus of homes past.
Trees, houses, stores, families uprooted. 
Toys stuck in the mud.
Two homes with “for sale” signs.
American flags flying everywhere.
No one home.

And you?

For the best views, so to speak, please scroll down slowly.

It's sad and devastating... yet the beauty of the people, the help, the gallons of bleach, and stacks of gerber baby food.

Keeps me SO IN LOVE with NYC!!!
