First Listener Storm Photo From New York City!
We all know where this photo was taken. Battery Park, at the southern tip of Manhattan. We have all been there. Whether strolling through the area on a beautiful day, maybe waiting for the ferry to take us over to the Statue of Liberty, maybe having a bagel and a coffee while waiting to meet up with a friend. it is a beautiful spot with gorgeous views.
Well, as of this morning lower Manhattan is basically empty. Everything from the stock market to the corner store to the local subway stop...closed. A listener, one of the last ones out of the area while on a business trip, sent this photo to share. And this is before Hurricane Sandy comes ashore with a historic tide surge. Look at the water already coming over the bulkheads of the park and soaking the area. I can only imagine that if this is hours before Sandy strikes, what will it be like at midnight tonight!
