Goodbye Sandy

Hurricane Sandy is gone and sadly we will always remember the damage she created here in New York City.  Nonetheless, as we remember Sandy we will also remember how resilient we are as human beings.  We will always remember how we stood together as a nation and despite our losses we did not surrender, but got up and started the clean up job.

Mileposts Productions photography team was out in the borough of Brooklyn in New York City and took the following photos.  Enjoy the slideshow and feel free to tweet it.

Hello world,

Labor Day is tomorrow and it really should be a day to rest from our labor, but with so many people out of work, how many need to rest from their labor? The other irony of the situation is the sales. Surely, it is a great day to get good deals if you have money to spare. If you’re in New York City make sure you check out the West Indian Day Parade 2011 on Eastern Parkway in Brooklyn. One staple of Labor Day that we will miss tomorrow is the Jerry Lewis telethon. Well, we hope tropical storm Lee stay away from Brooklyn so we can enjoy the food and fun at the West Indian Day Parade. Be safe and enjoy your Labor Day.

She’s Here- Hurricane Irene Is Here!

Hurricane Irene is here. It is about 7:45am now and I just captured this picture in Brooklyn, New York. Irene is not playing with us – she is serious. In about 1hr she will hit Brooklyn. The picture above was taken by my camera phone. Be safe everybody. I’ll see if I can get more photographs later. Be careful how you travel today. Even if it looks like all is well- be careful.   In the area of Brooklyn closest to Jamaica Bay and Kennedy airport, the rain is really pounding on the windows right now.  A few branches have been broken off and I saw one power line dangling. One of the good things is we can see a little daylight, so we can check for leaks and make sure we charge up phones and so on. Be safe!
