Well that was quite the storm. Things seem to have quieted down for now, but I was definitely lucky. Still have all utilities and shelter.
The city, on the other hand, isn’t in the best shape. Lower lying areas like Red Hook, Battery Park, DUMBO, and the East Village are underwater, along with many other low-lying parts of the city. Tunnels, which are part of the main road access to the city, are basically underwater. The subways aren’t fairing all that well either.
Hospitals are suffering too - NYU Medical Center had a backup generator failure and needed help to evacuate its patients, and while people thought Coney Island Hospital had a fire, it actually was just a car that was on fire outside (which we can now oddly laugh about.
Like I said, I’m one of the lucky ones, but there are a lot of people without power and it seems like transportation into the city is a bust for at least a few days. If you can - make a donation to the Red Cross online or text REDCROSS to 90999 on your phone to donate $10. People need help.
For those of you in New York: stay safe and remember that the groundwater isn’t just sea water, but is probably sewage too, so don’t be dumb in it.
In the meanwhile, you can keep up with the news and events in the following spots:

Long story short, I forgot to upload my 2 shots from yesterday, so instead I’ll be digging up some old film shots that I haven’t posted yet.
I assume you mean my film cameras?
I’ve been incredibly lucky to have been given / passed down a number of cameras:
Other than that, I’ve had friends sell me cameras, and bought the other ones either on ebay or in stores.
