Safety cannot be over emphasized in the wake of hurricane Sandy. The street might be familiar but the water is full of the unknown. Be careful walking into water even if it appears shallow.
Another thing to bear in mind is for those photographers looking for the unique shot. You have to make the shot unique. There are many fallen trees and everyone will be taking the same photograph of the same fallen tree. You have to find a different angle. As you go looking for that money shot make sure you are aware of your surroundings. Look out for fallen or hanging cables and raw wires.
Later today I hope to bring you some photos from Battery Park, New York City. Battery Park is one of my favorite places to visit while in Manhattan. I always liked looking out at the Statue of Liberty. It was hard to comprehend the East River coming into the park and flooding lower Manhattan. Sandy certainly made her presence felt.
