Hurricane Sandy NYC Photos: Into The Dead Zone, Part II

hurricane sandy brooklyn bridge

For a second night I ventured into the Dead Zone.  I started at the Brooklyn Bridge and moved up past City Hall and into Soho.  The sky was a different story on Thursday night than it was on my adventure Wednesday night.  It was overcast and the lights from midtown and Brooklyn reflected off the clouds to provide an ominous aura.  The most interesting thing I saw were the lights on the bridges.  Half of the Williamsburg, Manhattan and Brooklyn bridges were lit.  The Brooklyn side.  Half of the bridges were dark, the Manhattan side.  Fascinating.

But again, I’ll let the pictures do the talking.  I think Staten Island will be my next stop.  It seems from what I hear that they got it the worst and have received the least in help.

Manhattan Bridge from Brooklyn Bridge. It seems as if half the bridge is powered from Brooklyn and half from Manhattan. The Manhattan side is dark.
