Hurricane Irene had everyone in Harlem indoors this past weekend but a Harlem Bespoke reader went out on Sunday to take dramatic photos of the damage at Marcus Garvey Park. Even though the flooding was not as great as expected in the city, the winds really did a number on the larger trees around town. As can be seen in the above images, some of the older trees had branches split into many sections and even were uprooted. The city had workers out clearing everything up yesterday and it appears that nobody got hurt from any of the falling branches of the late summer hurricane.
