On Sunday, it was actually quite windy in Brooklyn. Here are some pictures of, I took during a walk through Park Slope in the morning:
Other than the fallen tree, Irene didn’t destroy anything noteworthy in Brooklyn. Still, the overall trail of damage is quite notable.
So, we’re sitting here in Evacuation Zone C, drinking beer and waiting for Irene to arrive. The picture below shows the view of Manhattan, we have from the roof top of the place I’m staying at.
The way it looks at the moment, however, it will rather be a tropical storm than a ‘real’ hurricane, once it hits New York. It is still interesting, how all public transport was shut down already at noon and how people secured their buildings and their trash cans 😉
