Hurricane Sandy, Manhattan
Nov 5, 2012

I went to Lower Manhattan yesterday to survey the damage. I was amazed at how high the water level was at it's peak during the storm. I noticed and you'll see in a couple of shots, that the waterline was approximately 6 to 7 feet above ground. There are also tons of utility trucks and crews working around the clock down there.

Example of the waterline. It's just above the "Heartland Brewery" sign in this photo (located on South Street which is a few hundred feet West of the river):
