Parsons School of Design alumnus with a BFA in fashion, who has worked in the menswear industry for several years. Past lives have been in the East Village and Lower East Side of Manhattan; more recently transplanted to Harlem. Currently living in a 1907 "French flat," an Edwardian era middle-class apartment.
Hurricane Sandy has mostly passed through New York City and luckily Harlem was one of the neighborhoods least affected by it all. Besides the inconvenience of the subways being shut down, not too much else happened except for howling winds and some heavy rain. Friends in Chelsea, Chinatown, Brooklyn, and Murray Hill have all reported power outages all night and many outer parts of the city have been flooded. The above map show the evacuation zones in red and most of those areas saw water levels rise at record levels. Avenue C in the East Village had cars submerged in water and Battery Park faced the same fate since it was mainly built on landfill. The worst appears to be over and now the city has to face some major cleanup, access the damage done and wait for things to get back in order. Click on image to enlarge
