On the Plus Side, I Don’t Have School Until Monday

Bruce Springsteen – 4th Of July, Asbury Park (Sandy)

At the end of August I moved from Bushwick into my boyfriend’s apartment in Long Island City.

Living in LIC during Sandy has been all sorts of exciting. We’re ok (we live on top of a hill near an evacuation center) but a lot of Long Island City was dealing with flooding last night. I went out with my camera the night before Sandy hit and this afternoon. If you want to see (blurry) pictures of the Vernon Boulevard area during the storm check out my twitter.

The Night Before

Construction on the 7 train

The Day After

Today I wanted to walk to Gantry Plaza since we could not even get close to Center Street last night. The water had gone down, the park was filled with people ignoring “Do Not Enter” signs, but people were mostly silent. I could hear sirens from Manhattan, the creaking of construction in the wind, and the ever present lapping of waves.

    Those are some pretty nifty photos, Leith! It seems you have a pretty good camera, and a good eye to go with it!
