Carousel House

Asbury Park Fenced Off

I went to Asbury Park the weekend after Thanksgiving. Most of the town was okay but the beach area was completely fenced off. All the small shops were being cleaned up and renovated.

Gravestone with a Flourish

I bummed around the Florida Keys for a few days with BDW for his birthday. We rented bikes and rode all around the old town area. There's an old cemetery in the middle of town that really reminded me of the New Orleans cemeteries. In fact, the old town section really reminds me of New Orleans, minus the great live music and fantastic New Orleans cooking.

Flying out of Florida at sunrise, I caught a nice view of the Everglades.

Moon View

I went to Asbury Park over the weekend. I'll post some pictures of the storm damage later tonight. It's so hard to believe how much damage that storm did to New York and New Jersey (and many other places I'm not mentioning).

Update: Here's a slideshow of some of the fenced up areas.

I was taking pictures of all the blog authors for our upcoming, new website at work and these two goofed around a little for me. Fun, fun.

New Jersey After Sandy

Hudson River Pre and Post Sandy

I went down to the river (cue Bruce Springsteen) to see how the water looked on Monday afternoon around 4:00 pm. It looked angry:

This was Tuesday at about 5:30 pm, well after the storm had passed:

Life at the Water's Edge II

Today Governor Cuomo said we need to have "a fundamental rethinking of our built environment." It reminded me of an exhibit at MoMA that I wrote about a few years back where architects were asked to re-envision the entire New York Harbor coastline (one of the models is pictured above). Little did any of us know how soon we would need to undertake that activity. As Cuomo said in a press conference yesterday, "Anyone who says there's not a dramatic change in weather patterns, I think is denying reality." 

This city needs to make some changes and in a hurry. All we can do at this point is adapt and be prepared. Buckle up, we're in for a bumpy ride.

NYC Power Outage

I went up on the roof to see if I could tell that everything below midtown is out of power. Here's the picture I took tonight.

In this next picture I took during the Super Moon in March 2011 there are a lot more lights on. It's definitely darker right now. crazy. 

I haven't gone downtown yet. Maybe tomorrow night I'll take the bus down and get some pictures.
