This is my neighborhood. I took a walk earlier to see how things were going before Irene hits. (Captions above each picture.)
The new fish shack near the water. Haven’t been yet.
Bagelsmith. They stay open ALL THE TIME. Seriously, it could be the end of days and you could buy a a bagel there.
The Future Perfect with a perfectly funny window treatment.
East River State Park. Mandatory evacuation for this area (about four blocks from us) It was basically a ghost town.
Blackbird Parlour. Boarded up but bumping inside.
Oy Vey indeed. (I have no idea what this bar is called or how it’s still open at all to be honest.)
NYC Muffins. Boarded up but ready for business. As you can see, everyone is in a panic.
Oh, and this is my baby. Arrr!
