Boardwalk No More

Arverne by the Sea seems to have suffered little damage from Superstorm Sandy, except for having lost their boardwalk.

NYPD Action on the Hudson

After the fireworks tonight, there were a lot of sirens and this NYPD Riverside Park and there was a police boat there too. I'm not sure what they were looking for. I haven't seen anything on the news.

July 4th Fireworks

I watched the fireworks from my roof. They were lower this year so it was hard to see as much as in previous years.

The wind blew the smoke upriver and after awhile it was pretty hard to see. It started burning my eyes so I went in.
