Lower Manhattan below 34th Street has been devastated by hurricane Sandy. The Hudson river overflowed at 23rd Street onto 10th and 11th Avenue. The west side highway, a river. The East Village is under terrible floods as is Battery Park City. Fires in Chelsea and throughout the city. Sandy caused terrible damage perhaps the worst hurricane damage in NYC history. Sandy wrecked havoc through out the region.
Fortunately on the Upper West Side of Manhattan her name was Sandra. She didn't quite let her hair down here like she did downtown.

To all my friends, clients, colleagues and family downtown Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, City Island, New Jersey, Long Island and Westchester without power and devasting damage to your neighborhoods, homes and businesses please stay safe. Let me know if you need anything or any help.
