Heights Provides Consummate Media Image Of Lower NY’s Blackout

The consummate photograph that newspapers around the world are using to illustrate Lower Manhattan’s Monday night blackout from Hurricane Sandy—not surprisingly—was taken from our Brooklyn Heights Promenade.

New York-based Associated Press photojournalist Bebeto Matthews took the pic, which has appeared in papers across the U.S., as well as New Zealand, Norway, France, Wales, Saudi Arabia, Thailand, India, Germany, Malaysia… on and on. The AP caption reads, in part: “Lower Manhattan goes dark during superstorm Sandy, Oct. 29, as seen from the Brooklyn Heights Promenade in the Brooklyn borough of New York. One World Trade Center, background center, remains brightly lit.” Larger view below.

Personal harumph… If ya ask me, your BHB correspondent’s pic, taken just after dawn Tuesday morning and posted here, trumps Mr. Matthews’ image. Hey, I’m here to serve youse
