Scuba Diver in Subway Station

One photograph purported to show a scuba diver swimming around a submerged 14th Street-Union Square subway stop in Manhattan:

This one's real, though. While everyone else was inundated with water, 100 houses burned down in the Breezy Point section of Queens. It's a pretty big damn deal and it got lost in the shuffle.

That, and the water's not brownish gray and loaded with debris and dead rats.

You'd probably have to flush that shit out for 20 years before the water was actually clear.

Looks like no electric for 8 or more days. Two hour wait for gas. No milk or water anywhere. I don't really mind. Directv and generator. Helped at my parents deli today. Like a war zone. Only place in town open. By the way my directv lasted in hd until the power went out half way through the height of the storm. My prayers for the people of south jersey. Been there so many times. Unreal.

Good to see you're okay.

Yeah, those 80 or so houses that burned look like something from WW2.

So the end result? Not sure if all results are in.

Could it have been worse? Was it as bad as pics show? (you can cherry pick BAD areas and make it seem REALLY bad) Of course the media is hyping/milking it. Was it a CAT 1 or 2 Hurricane? I know it sucked that it happened at high tide.

The first time since, what 1885 since the NYSE been knocked out for 2 days straight. Subways are flooded, fire storm in Queens.

I don't know...don't have a feel for it.

Edit: I live in the middle of nowhere. Our power goes off 3x/yr. I have a generator and built the house with wiring to where I just plug the generator in with 1 plug and runs the whole house. I don't expect an apartment tenenat to have that level of preparedness.

Again, my population density = nothing compared to NY.

It was pretty bad - NYC took a hard hit but NJ was crushed. That sums it up here.

Interesting how similar the aftermath was compared to the episode of "It Could Happen Tomorrow" (reaired a few weeks ago) which profiled a CAT 3 hurricane directly hitting New York. I guess compared to what they profiled it could have been worse. Some parts of the areas affected look exactly like what they profiled.

Thanks.

If that photo is real, it would be iconic. We can't trust anything anymore. :(

Stay safe man.

Seven days, possibly more, without power. Nor'easter this wed could worst case be 18 inches of snow but probably rain and wind, up to 45 mph.

Yeah the house is fine. First thing I did when it was clear was get the leaves and sticks off my baby, the lawn. So obviously physical damage is not an issue.

The issue is the gas lines. Wow. Wasnt alive during gas crisis decades ago. People are saying its about the same. Started alternating plates today. Watched a station near my job have a line supposedly start at 3am, some sleeping in their cars. Ended at 9am with no tanker coming. Started up again at 11am and ended at 5pm with no tanker arriving. Tanker finally came at 8 with a police escort and the line was about 2 miles long within 30 min. I should really video tape it.

Had a guy pull a gun on somebody in the line and let's just say that kind of stuff doesn't happen in this middle class town. Overall though more helping each other than attacking which is cool. People that have generators letting others charge their phones.

Still, looking at staten island and the jersey shore these issues are a minor inconvenience save for extreme circumstances.

I did get to see kc continue their quest for the number 1 pick which was nice...

About the gas...is this a supply issue or are that many stations without power?

I think part of it is stations not having power. On top of this the ships couldn't get into port, the big refinery in nj flooded, and everyone needed extra gas for their generators.
