After the Hurricane

fallen branches in McCarren Park

Sunday afternoon, after the brunt of Irene had passes, Boyfriend and I took a little walk through Greenpoint, into Williamsburg, in search of a Bloody Mary and less than an hour wait for one (understandably, with no public transport, a lot of people were not able to get to their jobs and restaurants that were open were very understaffed).

Below is some of what we saw.

I wish I'd hit video to record these birds. They were so cute and happy, splashing around in this puddle.

A large tree, dubbed the "Vagina tree", in McCarren was a victim of the storm.

The stump of the Vagina tree. Amazed how quickly it was cleaned up!

Boyfriend had a cocktail, too

How did your neighborhood fare in the wake of the storm?
