The Blessing Of Light (Again) Across The Manhattan Skyline

The price tag from Hurricane Sandy’s damages in New York totals $42+ billion, according to the latest tally from Gov. Andrew Cuomo, including $33 billion to repair housing & infrastructure and $9 billion to protect transit systems, the power network and sewage treatment facilities from future storms.

While many neighborhoods continue to suffer, there’s solace in again seeing the bright lights of the Manhattan skyline from the Brooklyn Heights Promenade, with this pic taken Friday just after dusk… quite a difference from the view just after the storm (pictured below). (Photos: CT)

    Okay fit4ufor3rd, We know you have your troubles there, but you chose to live in a flood plane and if you have proper insurance you have nothing to whine about, if you don’t too bad. Also what gets me are all those suposed “heros” that rescued themselves and neighbors from the rising water, really? you had three full days notice to evacuate yet you decided to stay, hero no, fool yes.

    @ God Almighty, very good point you make a good point so many NYPD and FDNY live in Gerritsen Beach yet they do not evacuate? Sounds foolish to me?

    It is so hard to express gratitude without causing offense.

    I rarely attempt it.
