Buh-Bye Irene

Some pictures out there, post-hurricane. This is my favorite—the best use of a traffic-free street.

Playing Catch in the Street

These downed trees are on Bleecker Street, in the park next to the playground. I hope they can recover that tree in the back left.

This is on Hudson, just around the corner from the shot above.

Downed Branches on Hudson

That was the only damage I saw. This is along the Hudson, heading downtown. That’s One World Trade going up in the distance. I loved it out there. Especially along the river because it was genuinely windy, and strong with that sea smell that brings back only the best memories of childhood. Maybe it was all the ions or electrons or whatever it is that’s moving all about, but something in the atmosphere made you feel so alive. It was crowded out there so clearly I wasn’t the only who thought so.

  1. Great it is over in your place!
    We are going to have an usual visitor this weekend. I don’t think this gonna be a bad one, but it is on the way and it is growing, I can’t say it’s OK.
    Besides, I am planning to ride Shinkansen to Shizuoka Saturday to attend SFcon Japan and do 90 minutes ESP room with professor Ishikawa. Yep! We are trying to get more publicity for Unbelievable.
    Just hope we can all be there without any trouble…

  2. Sayaka, how nice to hear from you. I’m jealous. A SFcon in Japan talking ESP sounds fun.

    Wait, what, is Japan getting a hurricane too?? I just googled Japan weather and nothing came up.
