NYC – The Morning After Sandy, Surveying the Damage (Photos)

Cops and Joggers – NYPD’s finest head southbound on the empty West Side Highway past a jogger next to the flooded out Chelsea Piers.

The story this morning? New Yorkers are going to work to repair their wounded city.

New Yorkers are waking up to a badly damaged city. The main story is flooding of crucial infrastructure including power stations, subways, tunnels and more. Buildings on the water front are flooded up and down the island. Much of the city is without power. And then there’s that crane in midtown. So, New Yorkers are going to do what they always do. They’re gonna get a cup of coffee and then they’re going to get to work rebuilding their beloved city.

You gotta hand it to the NYPD, they were prepared for anything and they did a hell of a job last night.

The crane still has a big chunk of midtown shut down.

The cops are keeping an eye on the crane.

The storm surge buckled the pier at W. 44th Street next to the Intrepid.

A dumpster got carried over the retaining wall on the West Side Highway.

When water is moving lumber this size around, you can be sure it entered all the surrounding buildings. These are near the High Line in Chelsea.
