Hurricane Irene left NYC this morning and thankfully we're still standing strong for the most part. The only inconvenience was losing hot water which is still MIA. Here are some pictures from around the neighborhood.
|East River Walk|
|Car Park under the FDR Drive|
|Garage in the mandatory evacuation zone below my building|
|The ground is saturated from recent rain, surprised we didn't loose more trees|
|Avenue C is rarely this deserted|
Interesting that the name Irene is derived from the Greek word εἰρήνη (eiréné) meaning "peace"
