Streets of New York City (Soho, Nolita, Cooney Island) as IRENE comes calling

Its been exciting to wait for the first hurricane hurtling towards New York City in living memory. Thanks IRENE, we needed a break from work and other mundane things of life. It feels like there is no worry for tomorrow! A friend and me even went driving out today to Cooney island, to Times Square! Though definitely not its usual, the city aint yet beat !

The Famous Lombardi's Pizzeria is Sandbagged too!

It is amazing how fair warning went out into a major metropolitan area in a timely fashion making the numbers of lives and injuries a minimum. Had Irene hit NYC the way it was predicted there would have been major negative long lasting economical effects on the city.
