Superstorm Sandy: Still Not Normal On Staten Island

I had to deliver a kitten to an adoptee yesterday and got a ride from someone.

We also drove through a few parts of Staten Island and I took pictures mostly while in the moving car. At first I didn’t think I had anything to publish, but I went through them again and put together this collection.

We didn’t go to Midland Beach, one of the hardest hit areas. As it was, I felt awkward taking what pictures I did. But people need to know that there are still sections of Staten Island without power and people are still cleaning up after Sandy so many days later.

All photos have been resized and resampled to VGA — except for the cropped-zooms, which can be enlarged to full size.

Misery

Nor’easter bears down on New York City, complicating Superstorm Sandy recovery efforts

The lights blinked several times last night, as they did before we lost power during Superstorm Sandy.

This morning revealed why. All the trees that had been weakened by Sandy topped under the weight of the snow. There are four to six inches here, depending on the block. This is like a spiteful kick in the face after being dropped to the ground.

Monday is supposed to be 63F. Bring it.

Part Eight showed lower Manhattan days after Sandy.
