Dude striking poses in the middle of 6th Ave and 57th street. Clearly crazy but I love New York crazy.

First photo: 7:06pm, Nov 1, 2012. The almost pitch black corner of 20th Street and 1st Avenue, a police officer directing traffic.

Second photo: 7:16pm, Nov 1, 2013.  Same corner, bright and cheery. 

First photo: 7:50pm, Oct 31, 2012. People waiting patiently in line (at 2nd Ave and 23rd Street) for a bus to take them somewhere in the deep dark gloom.  It’s an indescribably eerie world.

Second photo: 7:34pm, Oct 31, 2013. Same street, typical busy Thursday night in New York.

First photo: 7:33, Oct 31, 2012. 2nd Avenue in the middle of the blackout zone. The building are all dark in the background. Beware cannibals!

Second photo: 7:27, Oct 31, 2013. 2nd Avenue, all is normal. Beware crazed cab drivers.

First photo: 7:16, Oct 31, 2012. Lexington between 39th and 40th. Halfway down the block the lights go out and we’re in the dark zone.

Second photo: 7:17, Oct 31, 2013. Lights on.

First photo: 5:14pm, Oct 30, 2012. Tree outside Gramercy Park ripped out of the sidewalk by the force of Sandy’s winds.

Second and third photos: 5:12pm, Oct 30, 2013. Just a baby tree in it’s place

First photo, 2:49pm, Oct 30, 2012. Our basement being, which had been flooded up to the ceiling, being pumped out.

Second photo, 2:50pm, Oct 30, 2013.  Basement dry, but still being repaired a year later.

First photo: 8:37pm, Oct 29, 2012, water surrounding our building, reaching towards the front door.

Second photo: 8:44pm, Oct 29, 2013. Nothing but pavement.

First photo: 7:47, Oct 29, 2012. Looking out our window as the water flows in from 20th Street, around our building. Just a little bit scary.

Second photo: 8:17, Oct 29, 2013. Same window, no water!

silenceiscorruption-deactivated said: Did you take these pictures? Sorry for asking >.<

I did take the pictures, no problem asking. These are in front of my apartment building.  My plan is spending the next few days taking dupe shots from the shots I took a year ago.

First photo, 7:26pm, Oct 29, 2012. 20th Street near Avenue C. I’m wading past my knees to get this shot.

Second photo, 7:29pm, Oct 29, 2013. 20th Street near Avenue C. Dry as a bone.

I’m doing a retrospective, then and now shots from Hurricane Sandy.

First shot: Sandy arriving, 10:30am Oct 29, 2012. The water is washing over the walkway.

Second shot: A year later, 11:05am Oct 29, 2012. A bright sunny day and the water is at least 10 feet lower.
