Irene’s Visit to NYC (2011)

As the storm Sandy is about to show her strength through the Tri-State area, I suddenly had a déjà vu to last year’s visit from a different lady: Irene.  She didn’t have as much to prove as Sandy, and although she caused destruction and fatalities, the consequences in New York City were luckily not as severe as initially predicted.  I hope all New Yorker’s stay safe & recover while Sandy “vents” and hopefully soon looses her power….

Here are a few photos from my stroll around midtown Manhattan & SoHo the day & evening before Hurricane Irene planned to visit.  All photos taken on August 26, 2011.

For those who have not been to NYC: This is NOT a lot of traffic….!
