Storm in New York

Most of you would have known by now, that a massive tropical storm, one of the worst in a generation, hit the US Eastern Seaboard just yesterday (Monday night NY time, Tuesday SG time). New York City was one of the worst-hit areas, with storm surges of up to 13.88 feet (!!) submerging Lower Manhattan, and with the entire Subway System shut down, due to the worst damages ever sustained in its 108 year history.  There is still no timeline as to when the subway will resume.

Most cities would probably have just broken down completely and been at a loss as to where to begin to pick the pieces up.

But not New York City. It’s made of much tougher stuff.

To all my friends in New York – which we only very recently left behind – stay safe and dry!  And to New York and New Yorkers in general, one simple word: BRAVO.

Storm in Brooklyn, not the same one as what just struck this week, but similar. This one occurred sometime last year.

About Kennie Ting

I am a wandering cityophile and pattern-finder who is pathologically incapable of staying in one place for any long period of time. When I do, I see the place from different perspectives, obsessive-compulsively.
