Thanks to Hurricane Sandy, there’s currently massive flooding in lower Manhattan and parts of Brooklyn, with streets turned into rivers in the financial district, the East Village, Ground Zero, and Red Hook. Power plants are exploding and almost all of Manhattan south of 39th street has lost power. One building on 14th street was even torn apart.

Here in Morningside Heights, we’ve been pretty lucky. Some lights have flickered and rain has leaked through ceilings and windows in EC, but no one’s lost power and the streets have not (yet) flooded. The worst damage so far has been these shattered windows in Wien Lounge.
